|"Shoo Shoo Baby" 10 x 13.5 original watercolor on paper NFS|
My painting this week was a retirement gift for a friend finishing up his Air Force career and moving on to a new career in the civilian world. Jeff's favorite airplane is the Shoo Shoo Baby which is a B17 airplane from WWII. As I said in my last post I had the privilege to visit this plane often because it resides in the National Museum of the United States Air Force. We lived at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base prior to our current assignment. If you ever have the chance to visit it is really amazing.
Jeff spent 26 years of his life in the Air Force and he said he loved it as much on his last day as he did on his first day of work. How many people can say that. 26 years of service before self is quite the accomplishment. I am proud to call him a friend and wish him the best as he starts the newest chapter of his life.
