Grandpa's faded blue eyes welled up with tears as his trembling hand put the weathered old photo to his lips....

She must have been pretty special.

    The Memphis Belle became a love of mine after seeing the 1990 movie by the same name. This period of time really calls my name... its sophistication... its glamour. I love reading history, researching it, figuring out how it came to be. And so it was with the Memphis Belle.

    Wiki: The background to the creation of the Memphis Belle artwork provides an interesting insight into the genesis of an item of Nose Art. The pilot of the aircraft, Bob Morgan, originally intended to call her Little One, after his pet name for his fiancee, Margaret Polk. However, fate intervened when the crew caught a film starring John Wayne and Joan Blondell called Lady for a Night. Blondell's character was nicknamed Memphis Belle and, as the crew clearly enjoyed the film and Morgan had close links with the state capital, the name Little One was replaced by Memphis Belle. Although the name was decided upon, there remained one outstanding problem: where to find an appropriate image ? Morgan took as his inspiration the US magazine Esquire which was famous for its 'tasteful' renditions of the fulsome female form. He wrote to the magazine asking for help, and later received a copy of the magazine's April 1941 edition. That issue's centerfold, created by the famous George Petty, provided the guide for Tony Starcer 's final work.

    Your image honors not only your grandfather but the memory of the men and their mission.

    Vision to reach out and touch the past.......and perhaps just and inkling of time captured is my way of honoring the many of the "Greatest Generation" that their sacrifice be never forgotten. For God and country ....there they have gone.
