USS Neosho AO-143

This is the ship I served on for a term in the Navy. It took 30 years, but I finally felt a bond with her, especially now that it's scrap metal. The painting is done from an old black-white photo taken on the day she first sailed in 1954 (the year I was born - see the bond?)

    My grandpa was in the Navy, and it holds a special place in my heart--love this painting!
