“Nighthawks Fighter Plane Attacking Battleship” drawing by John R. Ship

I hope to create many items of interest for you here.  My drawing of Nighthawks Fighter Plane Attacking Battleship is from lines of Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks painting which is pictured above my drawing.  A more in-depth analysis of this picture is discussed in my three-part analysis of Nighthawks which you can see here.  My blog is about my musings on art in general and what I think certain famous pictures might be about, with an emphasis on the artwork of Edward Hopper.

I am also an artist who makes pictures using cut paper glued to posterboard, like Double Play from First:
