Jim, I’ve run out of good quality images for the WW1 Gallery. πŸ™

Can you email me any others that you might wish to have included?? πŸ’‘

The objective that I had in mind was to show what a book of your WW1 art might have contained if such a piece was ever to be published. wink

Will try posting a new WIP 😎 WF painting today elsewhere…

Keep ’em comin’… these WIPs to the finished article just rock! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Great fun to see the “Red Baron Still Life” as if features at least 7 items from my WWI memorabilia collection. When I owned “Adriatic” (above), we called it “Caproni Victory.”
You have made some nice comments on Jim’s wonderful talent to show the Human side. If you view a lot of his work, you will note that quite a few show the “Canine” side too πŸ˜€ Lots of great aerodrome dogs are featured. We are lucky Jim stayed with planes & cars & combat related art. He could have had a great carreer sketching poodles for little old ladies at the Kennel Club shows! wink
But, seriously Jim, I think you have a solid market waiting for a book of just your WWI aero art.

Yes. “Up & At ‘Em” is quite unique. I cannot remember ever seeing another WWI aviation painting showing them taking off from a dirt strip. Grass, yes-but not dirt. In fact, if you stare at the fuzzy, streaked dirt long enough, it gives you such a strong sense of movement that you could get motion sickeness, if you are prone to such… ❗
I believe that all three, that I just posted,were painted prior to 1994.

When I owned “Adriatic” (above), we called it “Caproni Victory.”

It may well still be called that… Jim labeled the JPEG ‘Adriatic’ so I went ahead assuming that ‘Adriatic’ was the correct name. wink

Whatcha got there out of interest?

Then lets call it “Adriatic” now. This illustrates another interesting note about some of Jim’s paintings. Years later, he occasionally refers to some of his earlier paintings by a different title than we first knew them.
As he has recently sent images of the painting that hangs over my library mantle – which I always knew as “Brumowski’s Luck”, under the title of “Brumowski’s Close Call.” When I mentioned it, he felt it was no big deal. (I had teased him about not remembering the names of his “children” – the art) Only adds more interest to me. But might be a minor scare to some musuem worker checking its inventory list, years from now… 😯
I’m not clear on the “Whatcha got there out of interest?” question. Do you mean what do I have that is in the “Red Baron Still Life”? or what WWI memorabilia do I have Here? You can see a lot of samples on my website. as linked in my signature, below.

helmet; goggles; seatbelt; Bamberg Kompass; Goerz altimeter; WWI German cockpit throttle/mixture control; Anlass (starting) magneto for cockpit (the black item with crank handle in lower left, front). That is all I can see from this small image..

At one time, I had 395,000 pieces of original WWI German and Austro-Hungarian aircraft pieces ❗ Virtually all are in museums all over the world, or replicas now. Most in museum in Berlin.
Then…..I got interested in aviation art 😯

OCD ❓

If it ever happens… I’d love the last book with the big remarque. :winkwink

Jim has been good enough to forward me another batch of his WW1 and early aviation paintings which I will start posting over the next few days. πŸ™‚

To kick things off here is an image that I have never seen before and what a vista it presents! Lots to look at… lots going on. 😎
