Airplane Art, Paintings of Various Commercial & Leisure Aircraft
Delta L1011 Tristar Over Honolulu Maui Bound
At the time the old Lockheed 1011 was one of Chris' favorite airplanes & the first he ever flew on in the middle 1980's. Here you can see how he envisioned it flying to Maui just after takeoff from Honolulu. A trip he is very familiar with in his lifetime.
Painting directly from the airport at first, Chris proceeded to work on the artwork in his studio. Years later friend/co-worker began to tell him about her Mom working with Airtran and she would like to give it as a gift to her and could he add more planes. He recalls the joy of creating the look of twilight with the lights of the runway and airplanes.

Commissioned by a couple which the husband flies the Delta MD11, they chose their favorite city, San Francisco as the city beneath. You can make out Oakland Bay bridge under the clouds.
