Canadian Navy Centennial Art Selection

I chanced upon this painting by Richard Rudnicki, on the Canadian Navy Centennial Page. This is one of a group of Navy Paintings by a number of artists.

On October 15th, 2009 the six centennial paintings commissioned from Canadian renowned marine artists for the Canadian Naval Centennial were unveiled in a ceremony headed by the Chief of Maritime Staff, Vice-Admiral Dean McFadden, OMM, CD. The paintings reflect significant eras in Canadian naval history have been selected. Admiral McFadden was joined by the four artists and they helped him to unveil their respective work of art.

Kudo's to the Canadian Navy to turning to painters to help them celebrate their centennial.
