Description This is the second in my military commemorative gallery. The elements of this print remind us of the past and the present of the U.S. Navy. There are names of famous Admirals, some of their famous sayings, names of ships, battles, drawings of an aircraft carrier and a submarine. There are insignia of rank, ribbons, and medals. And a salute to all Navy veterans everywhere.
David Jacobson, Oklahoma City Member Since December 2017 Artist Statement Forty plus years in Oklahoma, eight years in Texas, six in New Mexico, one in Colorado, and almost twenty in California. I've been around the west pretty much.
I'm an Air Force veteran, graduate of the University of New Mexico, and a retired computer programmer.
I discovered oil painting many years ago, later moved to acrylics, and found digital art, which I enjoy most of all. Lately I've been studying "minimal" art and find it very interesting. I do a lot of abstract images which I title as "Shapes".
My two galleries are "Decorative" and "Commemorative" , the first including the familiar abstract, still lifes, landscapes, figure, seascapes, and skyscapes while the second includes salutes to the branches of the military, law enforcement, fire departments, and others.
