Under a Tonkin Gulf Moon

‘Under a Tonkin Gulf Moon’

This is my completed painting depicting US Navy ships on Yankee Station during the Vietnam War. It shows elements of Task Force 77 steaming under a full moon and broken sky in the Gulf of Tonkin.

Represented are four classes of ships commonly deployed during that time, including a vintage Essex class carrier, a Leahy class guided missile ‘frigate,’ a Forrest Sherman class destroyer and a Fram II modified Gearing class destroyer.

You will soon be able to visit my website atwww.marineartbydale.com for information regarding ordering or email me at byhres@telus.net
