'Down from the Edge of Space' 

      John continues to promote a presence of his art in northern regions.


As mentioned in the article, this painting in part, serves as a recording of a particular event that took place in 1987 . As noted the two day aviation expo was the largest of its kind ever in the state of Minnesota. The article goes on to say that this piece was on display during the event as well as T-shirts with the image were sold as souvenirs also commemorating the popular summer event. Perhaps there are some people out there who still have one of these T-shirts to this day. Incidently, I happened upon one a while back inside an old speaker of mine. I gave it to dad before he passed away, I showed it to him and I asked him if he wanted it. It was a large that was too small for either of us but I do recall it was in nearly pristine condition. I am sure it is somewhere on John's estate and I am confident that I will locate it.
