Great additions!

I’ve always liked Philip West’s “Over The Beaches”.  I’ve seen those two Grinnells before, and they are very nice.  Marc Poole’s Gilmore race plane is very cool.  We don’t see enough air racing art.  Finally, Gareth’s “Dropping in at the Horse and Jockey” is sublime.  In my opinion, it is the finest Battle of Britain image I’ve seen this 75th anniversary year of the battle.

This one is only eligible for honorable mention.  I got it last year and forgot to enter it in the 2014 contest!  Shame…  I figured I’d post it for people to see anyway.

Kurt,  those quick color studies from Russ are keepers, good to see you expanding, proving that good art can supercede prints with signatures. It always will!

Nice painting Kevin! Great light going on. Good to see you back on here, let’s all get this thing rolling better than the first go round!!

Andrew Dillon pops up in the GAVA show most years.  I believe he won the top award in the 2014 GAVA show with his painting “Joining the Fight – Sopwith Dolphin”.

Steve,

Thanks for your entries.  We welcome self-nominations.  The main point of the contest is to see what everyone has painted/acquired over the last year, so we’re happy to have your paintings here.

Don’t be bashful, artists, feel free to add your work to the list!

Roy Grinnell

Roy and his wife are two of the most delightful people you could ever wish to meet. These are two of Roy’s Originals in my collection” The Struggle Begins” a great rendition of an RAF Hurricane early in the Battle of Britain and” Death at Daybreak” a Tempest shooting down a Junkers Ju88 night fighter.
