High Flight


I live in Kent near an old WWI airfield where we regularly walk the dog and I often think what it must have been like taking off from this small field when you can see France across the channel.  The bravery and miraculousness of these flights is what inspired this painting.  The title is from a poem describing flight from a WWII airman and it has the most wonderful lines:
'And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings ... Put out my hand, and touched the face of God'.

One of the great things about my paintings is that they look different in different lights - and even more so if iridescent paint is used.  The photos here have been carefully chosen to show the painting in different lights. This will give you some idea of what the painting will look like in the different lights in your space.
