P51 Mustang in Flight


P 51 Mustang in Flight – Originally painted October, 2007– One quick look at the rest of my paintings will tell you that this one is a departure for me. I’ve ventured into unfamiliar, if not unfriendly, territory. I don’t have much experience with blues and I’ve never done an airplane before, although as a child I used to draw them a lot; I think that helped. This was exceptionally difficult as I attempted to picture the P51 with a polished metal exterior (no paint). I think it came out pretty well. Life gets dull without challenges and achievements. This was a real challenge. I would appreciate your comments PLEASE

Russell BakerSacramento, Northern California, United StatesAs a student in northern Minnesota I enjoyed being an artist. My uncle Charles: C. X. Carlson, a noted author, artist and muralist was a great influence me. I sketched and painted everyday until age sixteen or so, then it seemed as though life took over. Now, 40+ years later and retired, I have returned to the more pleasurable pastimes of my youth. This year, 2007, I started drawing, painting and playing music once again. It will be interesting to see where these endeavors guide me and how my skills in turn develop over time. Everything I offer here is an original. Some may be renditions of other works I find interesting, however originals just the same. If you see something you would like to purchase, email me.
