Astronaut aboard ship

This morning I made a dash to Bremerton to sketch the astronaut on the Viet Nam era destroyer, USS Turner Joy.  JoAnn, the shop manager, was very helpful, showing me where the astronaut was stationed.

It was a cramped space so I composed the page with just half the sculpture as I wanted to also include the hatch so that the environment of the ship would be a part of it.

This is “From the Archives” by Patrick Sexton.  It’s covered in collage pieces.  So my sketch has a couple of them, too.

A few more photos are here.
