November 30 - On the wall

I not only flew airplanes, I also drew them. Detail of a pen-and-ink
illustration I did more than 30 years ago, using a technique called pointillism.
This radial engine and chrome propeller caught my eye at the annual EAA
Fly-In and Convention in Oshkosh, WI. I snapped a photo and then spent the
 next couple of years completing the drawing. Most of the aircraft illustrations
I did back then were commissions. This and one other were for me, and are
hanging on the wall in my TV room. (India ink on illustration board.)

  1. I am so impressed. Not only with the finished project, but the stick-to-it-ive-ness required to work on it for several years. Bravo YOU!

    1. Thanks ... I just wish I could still do it. It hurts my hands to to pointillism now. That's why I stick to my knitting! =)
