Mes ailes (My Wings)

14 x 18'', acrylic on gessoed hardboard
Painting # 201, 2011
This painting is a commission piece done from a photograph provided by the client. Operating from Oregon, Van's Aircraft is an American kit aircraft manufacturer, founded by Richard "Van" VanGrunsven in 1973.  These aluminium planes are sold as kits for self assembly. This  RV-7A  model from the Van's Aircraft fleet had received a striking custom paint job.

The painting was a surprise gift for her husband who was the original owner of the plane before upgrading from a two to a four-seater.

Speaking of planes, I've been invited by the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, Ca to participate in a spring group show that will be entitled, ''Planes, Trains and Automobiles''. I will be taking a more conceptual approach for these paintings.

Friday Feature- Interview by Carrie Waller

Let it Snow, 6 x 8'', watercolour
by Carrie Waller

Carrie's Creations is a blog that features the artwork of gifted watercolorist Carrie Waller. She recently started a weekly post series interviewing fellow blog artists. I am the lucky beneficiary of this week's Friday Feature. In one single interview, I am probably revealing more about my background and creative process than if you read my whole blog from the first posting.

To check out the interview link  or view Carrie's compelling watercolor paintings, do visit her blog.  Many thanks Carrie for this unique opportunity.
