TRI-STAR SUNSET
oil 11"X14"

The Tri-Star L-1011 was Lockheed's attempt to create a commercial aircraft to compete with the DC-10. The L-1011 500 Series was ahead of its' time. It was the first commercial aircraft to have fly-by-wire technology and electronic activated ailerons. Due to delays in development of the Tri-Star's advanced electronic equipment, many orders were canceled by airlines, and they bought McDonnell Douglas DC-10's, instead. When the Tri-Star was finally developed, the "sun had already set" on Lockheed's bid for building commercial aircraft. Only 249 Tri-Star's were built.

SWITCH OFF
oil 8"x10"

Print Size 8"x10"
Up in the hills of Rhinebeck, NY is an aerodrome where one can still smell the castor oil burning from the old war birds of World War One. To start a radial engine, first you must turn the propeller completely through a cycle to prime the engine with fuel and oil. To prevent the engine from starting during this sequence, the field hand will yell "Switch Off," with the pilot confirming by replying, "Switch Off," and the field hand will safely perform the priming sequence without the engine starting. Next, the field hand will yell "Switch On," with the pilot confirming by saying "Switch On," and with a pull of the prop, you will hear a sound from the ages. Switch Off is a still life that just happens to be Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome's Sopwith Camel.

DIGNITY
pen/ink, 14"x 17"
Dignity is a stipple ( dots creating an image ) I did for a gallery that sold only Wild Life Art. After eight weeks of placing dots next to each other, I found that my feelings for this America symbol came through and was staring back at me with unblinking eyes. With all the work I do for the military, Dignity became my Logo.

A-10 THUNDERBOLT
Pen/Ink 8 x 11
In the two wars since World War II, (Korea and Vietnam) the Air Force wanted to maintain a close support aircraft that could also counter the odds with the on-growing Russian Tank forces near the West Germany's boarders. With the collapse of the USSR, the A-10 was thought not to be needed for the active service, and was to be slotted for the reserves. Such thinking has changed, the A-10 proved it's importance as a close support aircraft in Desert Storm.

F-15 EAGLE
Pen/Ink 8 x 11

F-16 FALCON
Pen/Ink 8 x 11
The Falcon was never actually meant to be built. It was instead started merely as a technology demonstration to see to what degree it would be possible to build a useful fighter that was significantly smaller and cheaper the F-15. Though the Falcon is in fact no Eagle, it did become a very successful aircraft. It has become a major pat of the U.S. Air Force, not to mention a leading exported aircraft.
