High In The Halls Of Freedom
Painting - Oil / Panel
High in the halls of freedom, past the thunderhead clouds, under the blue sky the little yellow Tiger Moth bi plane flew on like a butterfly on it's annuall migration.
Aviation has always fascinated me so much so that during my younger years I enrolled in an aviation course , planning to get my pilot's licence. Ensuing situations altered that plan a bit but didn't stop me from grabbing every chance to fly resulting in hundreds of flights since those days.
My first flight lessons where in a Piper Cup, a virtual mono wing version of the bi plane featured here. I still recall the feeling of freedom while dogging the mountains and passages of the giant cumulus cloud formations during these summer days.
I also tried to capture that inner glow of these clouds that appears when the sun shines through these clouds from certain angles.
