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.
