Air Mail

Air Mail, 24 x 20, oil on cradled board

This is another painting in my Flight series. I have a fondness for well played with vintage toys. This airplane has almost all of the paint worn off as well as a missing propeller.

The Trompe L'Oeil painting also has a torn pulp magazine cover, an airmail letter dated 1946, and airmail stamps.

Wish You Were Here

Wish You Were Here, 14 x 11, oil on board

This Trompe L'oeil painting is all about 'Having a wonderful Time, wish you were here'.
A hula girl, postcard of a tropical beach, a candy palm tree and a cookie airplane all sum up that summer holiday.

The Flyers

The Flyers, 12 x 12, oil on canvas

I love old books! I buy them at library book sales, thrift stores, get them as gifts or pick then up where ever I can find them. I love them in pristine condition or old and torn. This book, The Flyers by George Barr McCutcheon, was published in 1907 and was read by many at the Muskogee, OK, Public Library before it was retired and purchased by me about 15 years ago.

Don't you love the little portrait on the cover? It's a separate print pasted to the blue, embossed cloth cover.

This Trompe L'oeil is the second in a series of Flight Themed paintings.
