Children, Pallet Knives, and Toy Airplanes

So here I am, sitting in Kuwait in a hotel room with a small linen panel, a photograph of a cast metal DC-3 that I love, a palette knife that is waaaay to large, and a couple hours to kill.  I started out wanting to paint this thing in realism but sort of got lost along the way and thought it would totally suck.  

Ya know, I kinda like it.

    I don't kind of like it - I LOVE IT! It's just so cool. One of the best painterly knife paintings I've ever seen. Pleasure to view your work!
