"To Fight Another Day"
The subject of this painting is of a B-29 Superfortress having ditched in the Pacific in mid 1945. The 11 man crew reaching safety in their rafts before the giant bomber sinks into the sea. The crew are fighting not only surviving the ditching but the vast ocean and fast approaching dusk...the crew has made contact with A PBY Catalina along the route, this being visible in the far right background approaching the crew. Lucky to fight another day...
