The CH-47 Chinook has proven time and time again, to be an indispensable tool of mobility for the US Army. It is a powerful helicopter, capable of great speed and surprising agility, and one of its capabilities is water operations. The Chinook can not only take off and land in water, it actually floats.
In "Water Ops," by artist Dru Blair, the Chinook is depicted skimming across a lake at high speed during an insertion. The tremendous forces at work are evident by the spray careening vertically and forward off the front gear.
"Water Ops" is carefully reproduced on Museum quality Archival Stock, each print is individually signed, numbered and inspected by the artist for color consistency and accuracy. A limited number of 100 artist proofs is also available at $165 each.
"Water Ops" is also available as a Giclée (pronounced "zhee-clay'), which refers to a 7-color print which utilizes the latest in digital technology to reproduce art with breathtaking accuracy. This is the largest and most expensive version of our print line, usually measuring an overall 42" inches wide, and printed on museum quality Hahnemuhle paper for $495. A near perfect replica of the original painting, Giclée prints are limited to only 50 examples of each image, and are created for the most discriminating collectors.
