Beach Twin Baron

I like to paint airplanes and the sky. And I like to see the Earth from aloft. Some of my best ideas for painting come when I am flying somewhere and looking at the earth. (When it is a nice flight, anyway - I hate rough flying weather, how about you?)

My husband is a Pilot, and loves to fly smaller aircraft much more than taking a commercial flight, but he is good to hang on to during turbulence, as he understands the flight will be fine! He usually flies single engine aircraft but has flown and started to get his rating for planes with two engines - the 'Multi - Rating' training in a Twin Comanche.

This picture of a Baron was chosen because of I liked it during one of our trips to EAA Oshkosh in the summer. This is a picture I painted for him, for his birthday. This Picture was painted with Acrylic on Canvas, as I wanted something that is a bit more durable, and has a different character about it.

I have posts with other aircraft, if you like. They are:

White chrysanthemums

I like white colour for painting. It looks like light blossom in spring season.

One day I decided to paint something effective unusual. And I painted white flowers on white background.

It was one of my earliest white on white attempts to see how it would work out.

Rain in a small Canadian town

Water color painting of streets in a small Canadian town I like to paint rain landscapes, or 'Rainscapes.'

What could be better than walking a rainy Sunday afternoon with a group of friends, who are passionate about rain! We had a wonderful stroll!

I was impressed with everyone and it was fun to see how I interpret streets in my own unique style.

I had so much fun and hope everyone else enjoyed the afternoon as well.

This is one of the demo paintings I did. It is a quick study on paper with Water colour.

Four Petunias, in a flash! More flowers, more Love...

This is a Painting I did rather quickly - in just about 20 minutes, using a style of extra water on the paper to get the soft blended colors.

Petunias are one of the most popular bedding flowers and new types of petunias are constantly being introduced. Most varieties will bloom throughout the summer, except in extreme heat.

For a sampling of images of Petunias on the web, have a look here.
