Gazing skyward and dreaming of flying… and that’s how it starts.
Like so many others who eventually realized what flight was like, the artist remembers being a young boy and staring up at the sky and having a dream. His boyhood home and farm was on the flight path for student pilots from their small country airport. As he worked long hours in the fields he would daydream watching Piper Cubs and Cessnas as they lazily flew over and made their turn go go back to the airport.
This painting has been Rick Herter's most popular piece because it resonates so well with so many people. He hopes you enjoy the image and that it brings back happy memories of those innocent days spent gazing up at the skies.
