SHIPS

See the painting of the ship over the mantle? I have this painting, passed down to me from my Grandfather. I've always loved the painting. The ship itself is not pretty, its like a workingmans ship.
Its very cool to run across this on the internet.
The model is Madge Evans, and the date the picture was taken is 1930.
 I wish I knew who the artist was.

You can see it better here.

Addendum: The artist is GG Reynaud. Thank you Gina.

(Your word verification now says: "Please prove you're not a robot". This makes me laugh. I feel robotic at times.)

"I also have a tapestry that I saw in a porn movie one time" was my first laugh of the day! (And in Holland, it's now almost 6pm.)
