Jim, as you have stated that there is little likelihood in the immediate future of your WW1 art being published in book form, I would like to put up a gallery of your WW1 images, as and when I come across them, for the enjoyment of aficionados here at eHangar. πŸ™‚ (I know that you have keen fans here who may not have seen much of your work from that era).

Please advice if for any reason this is counter to your wishes.

First off then, a great rendition of Billy Bishop’s famous VC engagement which has aroused so much controversy over the years. 8)

Once again, Dietz shows us in this painting, the human factor that sets his work apart. πŸ™‚

Mud in your eye may be one of the best pieces of military aviation art i have ever seen. I enjoy so many pieces of work for a great variety of artist, this is one of the few that has ever hit me on an purely emotional level. It is also one of the few pieces i have ever seen that really brings home the role of a military aviator as soldier. The composition is unique and well done. This piece is humanity and aviation in toto. Thank you Jim, and Stormchaser for posting with permission.

Ouch! Your posting of Jim’s “Mud In Your Eye” was like poking a stick in my eye. On numerous occassions, I am reminded of the Dumbest thing I ever did, regarding my aviation art collection. embarassed I used to own the Original of Mud in Your Eye, along with the framed original preliminary sketch and a framed, specially remarqued artist’s proof print. I still have other Dietz originals, but letting go of that one will always haunt me. I still get to see it at the new owner’s home and always wince when I see it there. On a recent visit, when he knew I was coming, he took it down and hid it behind other paintings, as a favor to me. I have added some more recent Dietz work. I have added a couple more of his signed original preliminary sketches, and he did a special giclee of a work for me, that, I believe, will be a limited edition of only3!, with Jim keeping one of those. Here is the “set” of Mud In Your Eye.” I still have the specially remarqued, double signed, artist’s proof, which is hidden from view, in my back storage room. Too painful to look at. I am constantly thinking about using the beautiful frame for something else, and taking the proof out of it. Unless, someone might offer me something to trade for it wink

OMG Joe, what a magnificent set. Just thinking about what you have said is enough to conjure up a full blown nightmare. You must have been offered a mighty deal to break up the set and especially part with the original… I can feel your pain on this one. I guess we all make at least one major booboo in our collecting careers that will go on to haunt us and be regretted for years to come. πŸ™ πŸ™

Ah Jody but you have something to take its place, I’m sure! The Tall, Dark & Grusome giclee you brought home with you from your recent travels, should fit in the blank spot in your home! 😎

Blank spots? BLANK SPOTS! WHERE? 😯
Yes, the giclee was and will be a LOT of long-term fun and enjoyment for me and my visitors. πŸ˜€ A million Thanks, Jim.
Do I have your permission to post an image of it here, Jim? I think it is always best to ask, first.

Here it is. With six Helldivers, it definitely qualifies as aviation art. πŸ™‚
hand signed by Peter Jackson in lower left, and hand signed by James Dietz in the lower right. Jim had a cameo as a Helldiver Pilot in the 2005 film. But he hasn’t quit his day job… Yet wink

Circus Rolls At Dawn by James Dietz.

I’ll make no bones about it, I’ve always been a fan of Jim’s work. This one in particular, “Circus Rolls at Dawn”, strikes a particular chord with me. You can feel the tension in the air as the Albatrosse prepare to roll out. The worm’s-eye-view also reminds me of some of the neat camera angles used in “The Blue Max”.

Talking of “The Blue Max” here is the Dietz painting of the same name which also made it into print. 😎
