Sister Bluebird, Flying High Above

Here's something I painted for my father-in-law a few Christmases ago. He's a pilot, and he'd been asking me for a while to paint something aviation-themed. 

"Flight" Oil on Canvas, 24"x36"
Actually, I don't remember if those dimensions are accurate. 

I worked so hard to get those clouds EXACT, and I wish I'd loosened up a bit. I think it would have made for a more pleasing picture... easier to look at. For me, anyway.

Had a fantastic time in Oklahoma City, then worked for two days, then had a nice long Easter weekend! I'm starting to feel a little guilty about my work:vacation ratio as of late. 

Today I'm eating lots of candy and getting my YES on...
