Sharon’s Luscombe

“Sharon’s Luscombe” Acrylic on MDF, 7″ x 5″

From time to time I get a commission to paint something so exciting and fun that I wonder why I hadn’t thought to do it already. “Sharon’s Luscombe” is one such commission. Thanks to some dear friends and a new friend in England, I got an opportunity to paint this beautiful Silvaire Luscombe. It was built in the 1940s and Sharon can’t seem to stop flying it. Imagine that. I listened to the Glenn Miller Band playing while I worked on it.

“Dusk” Acrylic on MDF, 7″ x 5″

Night paintings are especially difficult for me, and so they are especially tempting to do.

This is a much traveled road, the road north to Denver, where surgeries are, where dear friends reside, where we board the plane to attend a funeral, where my daughter just bought a new house, where my son worked as a software developer, where Doc Holliday was arrested and jailed, where I met Terry Pratchett, where the Beatles stayed at the Brown Palace Hotel, where I attend a Dylan concert each year, the Mile High City, home of the Denver Broncos and the Unsinkable Molly Brown… yep, that Denver.
