A Pilots View, Acrylic, 60" x 60", 2009


"Pilots View" is a painting that is inspired by a friend of mine who is a pilot. He flies to the middle east, Australia, and Hawaii frequently to deliver packages from America. I often wonder what the earth looks like from a "pilots view". If I were to imagine the sky from above, I would see little bubbles of light that flicker through the clouds to expose the earth below. I have embellished a little in this painting, as the view is skewed, as the pilots perspective is beyond the flying range somewhere in outer space.

A pilots life must be filled with adventure. Pilots must  have many good friends in different parts of the world.  Pilots are special people indeed!  Their lives are truly blessed with the gift of flight and the ability to wander the earth in search of themselves.
