Bits and Pieces - Notes from the outside looking in...
I decided to return to my aviation roots. After too many hours to count, I have completed "Cormorant Mountain Rescue" which you will notice to your left. I painted this scene to honor all Canadian Armed Forces Search and Rescue teams who put their lives on the line to help those in need of critical assistance, to those who fly, maintain and support all SAR Operations across Canada
From the search for missing or crashed airplanes, lost or distressed hikers (as I depicted in this painting) to the lowering of high pressure pumps to save a ship sinking at sea amid monstrous waves, these teams are often faced with very dangerous and challenging flying conditions.
The painting illustrates how it takes the combined skills of the pilots, navigators, flight engineers and SAR Technicians to affect these, often life-saving rescues, whether in the Mountains of West Coast BC or the storm tossed coast of Newfoundland and everywhere in between.
For those who may be interested, information on how to purchase either a 24x30 inch or 16x20 inch Giclee, museum quality canvas print of this painting, may be found in the Aviation Gallery Section of this web site.
So until the next time, I wish you a safe and healthy summer season while I ponder my next painting
