My father was one of the Art Directors at Glenn L. Martins Aircraft Plant and he left a portfolio behind that I decided to donate to the now Glenn L. Martins Aviation Museum here at the Martin State Airport in Essex Maryland. While there, I was asked if I too was an artist and although feeling somewhat ill-equipped within the confines of the style, I attempted some illustrations of a few WW1 and WW2 War Birds. After submitting several, I found out that I enjoyed doing them. They were also gracious and extended an invitation to join and display any art work related to the museum’s theme which I genuinely accepted and decided also that I should submit certain projects on a voluntary basis. I do this as a dedication and remembrance to my Dad; Peter V. Buckles.
