The story behind the painting...

 

The artist says:

"USS ALBACORE (AGSS 569) - an American research sbmarine - now located in a museum in Portsmouth New Hampshire USA.

The drawing was inspired because I was stationed on it in the early 60's.  Albacore was the first modern cigar-shaped   submarine, it held the world's underwater speed record for many years.  It carried no weapons, and was 205 only feet long.  At one time it had five rudders (an X shaped stern with four rudders and a rudder on the after end of the sail) and no bow/fairwater planes which made her EXTREMELY maneuverable.  Extreme angles were the norm for this Ferrari of the seas.  Today she rests in all her glory in a specially constructed  "cradle" for all to enjoy."

These note cards are executed by a retired submariner using only dots to create a one-of-a-kind tribute to the Silent Service of the United States Navy.
