So as my friends were leaving the ridgetop strip I snapped a picture of the Super Cub taking off overhead. Fast forward to a couple weeks after getting home... A gentleman's wife in my office is a very accomplished painter and I showed him this pic to see if his wife could paint it. A few weeks later, this is what I got back. 20x24", oil on canvas. I'm quite pleased and it's a reminder of a great adventure.

That is outstanding! Your firend's wife is very talented! Unique things like this always seem to be treasured a lot longer than photographs for me.

Who is this gal, and does she take commissions? Great painting - good composition and execution, high drama. I have a better chance of getting a painting on a wall than a mount.

Thank you all. I'm pretty proud of it! Yes I believe she does do commission work. PM me if you'd like her contact info.

This was the pic. Told her to cut out the rockpile and flagging tape. Also told her to bring the plane more into the foreground and make it a focal point. 100% accuracy, otherwise.

Very nice, and I can relate with how special it is to you, as I had an artist do the very same thing a couple of years ago after my caribou hunt with my favorite photo from the trip!

Way cool! Love that painting! Wish I had some of that kind of talent...

That plane looks familiar... Spent some time up there with my boy a few years ago fishing and Frank Noska took us out - put us down on a willow choked gravel bar and we had an awesome time. Love those bush planes!

Treeline, yep it's a Piper Super Cub. The workhorse of the AK bush and the preferred craft for off strip landings.
