USS Blueback by Roderick Smith - November 2001

When I asked Roderick Smith about this recent painting, this is what he had to say: "I'm a professional artist living in Portland working in commercial art and with a fondness for outdoor "on site" painting. I enjoy working along the river with the wonderful colors and variations of light. I have been eyeing the submarine for sometime now and last Sunday decided, with a sun break late in the day, to give it try. It makes a great subject as it sits so comfortably in the water."
