John Shaw Black Sheep F4u Corsairs Print Signed By Veterans From The Pacific For Sale
THE HOMECOMING - A Grateful Nation Awaits -
a fine art print by John D. Shaw
September 12, 1945 . . . For countless American boys who sailed off to war in the Pacific, the Golden Gate Bridge was their last sight of home. Many would never return. Now, the veterans of WWII witness the joy of the nation they saved. A parade of watercraft escorts their convoy into San Francisco Bay while Corsairs of the "Black Sheep" provide an aerial salute. Stationed in California, the Black Sheep planes are factory fresh except for a war-weary model, used for training. Like the heroes below, this tired fighter will soon retire, its mission accomplished. America is free. No homecoming would be sweeter than this.

THE ARTIST: JOHN D. SHAW
John D. Shaw has pursued his art and graphics career since 1985. Born in 1961, this native of Carson City, Nevada is a veteran of both the fine art and commercial art fields. As an illustrator, Shaw created artwork for clients such as Lucas Films Ltd., Kellogg's, and Major League Baseball.
Shaw's work took a new emphasis in 1993, when he began creating paintings with a historical theme. With special attention to the World War-II era, his depictions of these aircraft, people, and their missions have become celebrated, worldwide.
Shaw’s artwork hangs in the collection of President Bush 41, President Bush 43, the Cavanaugh Flight Museum, and private collections worldwide. His art has adorned the covers of magazines like Private Pilot's Aviation Art Gallery, World War II, World War II History, Aviation History, and Valor Magazine.
With the completion of "The Homecoming," we are proud to have commissioned six epic paintings with our good friend and talented artist John D. Shaw!
