Before Christmas, I received a very interesting commission from a friend: to paint a military plane (if possible, a MiG), with the text “Man has two wings: grace and liberty.” It was to be a Christmas gift for a man who was a pilot in the army, and who loves painting. It was a unique opportunity – I don’t think it would have ever crossed my mind to paint a military plane otherwise, so I’m grateful for the experience. And here is the painting (acrylic), made on a large wooden plaque: 56 x 41 cm (22 x 16 inches). Like the rest of the image, the inscription was painted by hand, without any stencils.
