Kansas Crop Circles – December 16, 2009

“Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence.”
– Lin Yutang

Kansas Crop Circles

2.5″ x 3.5″

When I left the airport in Oklahoma City, on my way to Seattle last month,  I was intrigued by the view.  Since I have committed to flying lessons, I saw things differently than I have in the past.  I sketched this scene on to a little ATC.   (I always have watercolor supplies with me when I fly.)   When I was in my hotel room in Port Townsend, I started painting it with Golden Fluid Acrylics.  I finished it last weekend, after many more layers of glaze.  I did another one, which I will share with you tomorrow.  It was fun!

About Lin Yutang

He was born in 1895 in the Fujian province in China. He created a Chinese-American dictionary, an indexing system for Chinese letters, and translated many classic Chinese texts. Written in a humorous, accessible style, his books bridged European and Chinese cultures. He died in 1976.

    I love these flyovers, and the way you used the small format. Good job!

    I remember seeing these as I flew cross-country to visit sister in AZ. It was a beautiful array of shapes and your portrayal is a beautiful reproduction of what I saw.
