PT Boats In Action - Painting

March 3, 2009 - We just received an email from a gentleman in Italy. He is a PT Boat devotee, as are we. Here is his note...

Dear Mr.Garth Connelly,

I've browsed your very appealing website and this brought me back to some
years ago when I had the pleasure of visiting the PT Boat Museum at Fall
River, MA.

I must say that I've always been attracted by the PT boats, right from the
day when (many moons ago) I've seen the movie "They Were Expendable".
I'm a painter and just to remember that movie and the fascinating world of
the PT boats, in 2006 I made an oil painting depicting a WW2 action in which
two Jap Rufe fighters are contrasted by the fire of PT boats (one of the
fighters has already been condemned).

The painting is abt. 19 x 32" and I'm attaching a picture of the same.
My question is: do you know someone (through your links) who might be
interested to purchase my painting

Thank you very much for your time.
