“Wright Stuff”

30” x 24” Oil

The Wright Brothers started with a dream; man can fly like a bird. After many years of study they were able to understand the engineering needed for man to fly.
ILC DOVER, a world leader in the innovative design and manufacturer of space suits for NASA, was awarded as the prime contractor for the Apollo Lunar Space Suit in the 1960’s.
What would the Wright Brothers think of man traveling to the Moon?

“Out of the Frying Pan”

16” x 24” Oil

In the early days of aviation flying across the West could be a hazardous affair. With neither radios nor homing beacons for aid, pilots were on their own as they crossed vast stretches of empty landscape. One small error could spell disaster. Here, a pilot has managed to walk away from a crash only to immediately come face-to-face with a grizzly bear. What will happen next?

Cox_Steve_StalwartSteve Cox

“Stalwart“

16” x 20” Acrylic

When I was a kid, I loved to hang out at Weiss Airport in St. Louis County, MO. It was a small thriving FBO that has long since become an industrial park. Now my favorite small airport is Harvey Field in Snohomish, WA. Unfortunately, this classic Taylorcraft has become a rare sight among the dozens of boats and RVs parked in the open “T” hangers.

At 11:29 AM on July 8, 2011, Atlantis lifted off from Kennedy Space Center for the last space shuttle mission. Though cloudy skies threatened to delay the launch, mission STS-135 marked the successful conclusion of the 30-year program. Mission Commander Chris Ferguson said, “We’re completing a chapter of a journey that will never end.”

Military 3rd

Caruso_Hank_ClunisAliusHank Caruso

“Clunis Alius Non Fractus Est”

11” x 14” Ink and Prismacolor

Tailhook aircraft, billions of dollars. U.S. Naval and Marines Corps aviators, millions of dollars more. Bringing them back safely, priceless!
Landing Signal Officers . . . don’t leave homeport without them. This Aerocature tm salutes the LSOs, whose watchful eyes and experienced judgement guide carrier pilots back to pitching aircraft carrier decks. It was created for the Tailhook Association’s Tailhook Symposium. (Oh, yes . . . the Latin. It roughly translates to “Another buttock is not broken,” a play on the LSO School motto “Rectum Non Bustus.”)

Hill_Kristin_DeicingSorcerersMagicPlane.jpgKristin Hill

“Deicing the Sorcerer’s Magic Plane”

30” x 20” Oil

Mystery, magic and practical fact merge as curious fellows on the icy airport ramp, challenging our skills of observation to make sense of what we see. The “Iceman” inside his deicing equipment sprays a special glycol mixture on the ice-coated tail surfaces of the Boeing 737. This process assures the aircraft’s essential physical aerodynamics are maintained for safe flight. And the Mouse? Of course we all know Mickey and his adventures as the Sorcerer’s Apprentice. WestJet and Disney have collaborated to bring us the livery of the “Magic Plane” passenger jet and smiles to warm our hearts.

Rowe_Doug_LibertyBelleDouglas Rowe

“Liberty Belle”

12” x 24” Oil

Many B-17 and B-24 aircraft bore the name “Liberty Belle” during World War II. The aircraft depicted is a post-war composite of two B-17 aircraft that graced air shows all over. On the morning of 13 June 2011, Liberty Belle made a forced landing in Oswego, IL after taking off from an airport in Sugar Grove. Shortly after takeoff, a chase plane informed Liberty Belle that its left wing was on fire. The bomber landed successfully in a nearby field and everyone aboard evacuated without injury, but due to the rain over the weekend the fire engines could not reach it. The crew could only watch the airplane burn. Reconstruction is ongoing.


Distinction – $1000 and plaque

“Kenmore Sunset”

18” x 36” Acrylic

One of my favorite things is watching sea plane operations at Kenmore Air Harbor, on the north end of Lake Washington in Kenmore, WA. It is home to an amazing variety of new and classic seaplanes. Kenmore Air is one of the world’s largest Seaplane operators, and is also the leading maintenance and restoration center for deHavilland Beavers and Otters. Just bring them a pile of parts, a bucket of money, and you can fly home in a better than new classic airplane.
