human is the technological animal. still, some of us have that inclination for art. i like both, but early in my life opted for aviation, and spent many years into it. models and full size. but had that secret desire of art, so went to art shows and museums and admired all, although never dreamed of participating in it. late in my life suddenly all changed, found myself free of restrictions, and went to the local school of fine arts and spent 5 years learning to paint oil on canvas. but then i got the call for airplanes and came back for 8 years-and no art-until i realized i had all the planes i needed to fly when the weather was good, so no need to build more (see my blog). but what do i do with my time? so i decided to get back into art! recently my health is declining fast, and i hope there will be a cure for that, as i have so many ideas that would keep me busy for a long time, dreaming with my paintings and flying my planes.
anyway, i still will be able to soar with wings of eagles-in this world, or the other sooner or later. in the meantime, let's enjoy what we have. we don't know how long we will have it.
and i also want to thank you all folks for your help and encouragement in my endeavors.
your friend,
