Watercolor: This painting depicts the USS Kermit Roosevelt riding a typhoon in the South China Sea on it’s way to rescue the 1st Marine Div and Army 7th Infantry trapped at the Chosin resevoir, Korea in sub zero temperatures. This was February 27th 1950. My father in Law Jim Thompson was serving on this ship at the time, so I painted this for him to auction at his reunion.
