Plane

oil on canvas, 2004, 60"w x 36"h

I use a camera to record fleeting images like the glow of the setting sun off the plane engine. I don’t paint in any conceptual way intending to convey something; I just see something I love and want to render it. For all the hundreds of flights I’ve taken, it still seems like magic to me that the plane gets off the ground, that you can float over the earth and look down at it in protected comfort.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
