The combination of color and detail is especially eye catching in this one.

‘Air Recon’ a 20”x 25” Glossy oil on pressboard. Originally upon viewing this piece, I confess, it did not catch my eye as much as many of the other paintings my dad did… but he did paint a lot of aviation themes. I suppose it is probably because I was there growing up with much of it. Over the years I watched him create so many works to canvases, plywood and the like. And well...I'm afraid I may have taken some of them for granted and certain points of our relationship.  But now, as it turns out, while photographing a number of my dad's pieces...this is when I really got a chance to view them all so much more closely.

When we talked about this one he attributed it to an old black and white photo from one of his many aviation history books. Saipan; in the scene a Vought F-4U Corsair escorts two B-25 Mitchell bombers returning from a bombing mission.


 Just look at how well the minute details become reassembled through digital applications. This incorporates proper lighting, which is key when displaying any works of art as it is one of the components that truly brings out the rich color schemes depicted here. It currently hangs at the gallery…it is available for viewing or purchase.
