Flying

For a decade or more, beginning about 1989, my husband would take me flying in small Cesna and Piper aircraft.  These images are from those years, when I would videotape much of the flight and then draw from the video later, stopping it as necessary.  These are from Chicago, Asheville, the Oxbow in Northampton, MA,  Lake Winnipesaukee and Qwynn's Island.
