Now Completed! Atlantic City Skyline
This painting depicts the Atlantic City Skyline as if may have appeared in the 1930's. In the foreground to the right sails the famous yacht Atlantic, holder of the all-time record for a 24-hr run. Jim's appreciation goes out to Heather Perez, Atlantic city Archivist, and to Allen 'Boo' Pergament, Atlantic City Historian, for their assistance in building the skyline.

The Royal Netherlands Navy Battle-Carrier

In this painting the Dutch Battle-carrier Fleet is depicted maneuvering in the Sunda Straits of the western Java Sea under the command of the intrepid Vice Admiraal Martin Danielzoon Sweers. The year is 1940. To the right Hr.Ms. Schoonveldt is viewed sailing west-southwest off the remaining eastern section of the original cone of the Volcano Krakatoa. In the foreground left sails a colorful Chinese Junk so familiar to the waters of the Indonesian Archipelago.
