KDEN to KSFO In My Mind

KDEN to KSFO In My Mind
acrylic on canvas, 7" x 14", 2020

I love the landscape between the Rockies and the Sierra Nevada.  And every time I'm flying over them, I find myself wanting to fly "right" over them.  Jets like thicker air and the air is much thicker right above the ground.  And our jets have sufficient power to make it a great flight.  Just think of the photo opportunities.  People would love it!  I wanted to add contrails behind the get to emphasize the speed, but you'd never make contrails just above the desert.  The hardest part of this painting (there were many hard parts for me) was adding the jet.  I had to use reading glasses because my eyes are failing.  Flying IS Great!
