After seeing how they weld stuff at Bath Iron Works, have to ask... which way is up? 
I like that angled 4-bolt flange

Couldn't tell you to the nearest hundred how many of those I've made up and re-made when somebody else doesn't understand cross-tightening (not with that sexy angle, though... never seen one like that)

well, if you want critique, apart of course from the obligatory "buy an ad you fuckwad" one has to admit that this two line  alphanumerical cryptopainting does have some merits, of course it's obvious this not the ultimate work in this genre and certainly not of this painter (as the old monk told to the nun : plus est en vous, plus est en vous !!!),  far better examples have been shown by some real peers onhere, but yes, there is something in it, most notably that in this whole combination there is not one real direct relationship or reference to anything maritime, but the mere fact that the artist responsible for this small masterpiece just mentions the term "maritime" in his most worthy and elucidating explanification and suddenly the otherwise bland and meaningless combination of digits, letters and punctuation marks are seen through a totally different pair of alcohol troubled eyes and maritime  views, dreams and other seaside chimera's or even the odd naughtical oceanwide fata morgana paint themselves on the same alcohol addled brains, or whatever was left, this sir, this is a slight touch of genius, keep up the good works and stop sniffing that paint thinner.

hope the critique is not too harsh, it's inspired by the late Jan Hoet, probably unknown to all but used to be known as "the pope of euro art"certainly when it came down to his explanations why he would like (or not) the most outrageously weird and wonky artists ... who then became really known and $xpensive

It's post-modern deconstructualism. Or something.

How about this one?

Why is this worth considering? For one, this painting "The Fighting Temeraire" by JWM Turner sold for  $47.5M and for another Turner was considered one of the greatest artists of his age (and one of the rare great painters that was financially successful in his life time) and this painting drew large emotional crowds when it was newly finished and publicly displayed.

I think that young Admiral Hornblower has some very good talent, but he is young and still learning, improving, still being formed. I like his work and want to encourage him

I have this Richard Lane signed and numbered print. It’s “Vigilant vs Britannia”.....it resides in my master bedroom. They normally avoid sudden course changes till I’m asleep. 1250B7F9-4B40-443C-BE09-482AD54BD3E0.jpeg
