Barnstorming Jenny
« on: April 18, 2016, 11:49:54 PM »
I recently pulled this print out of my closet. It has been stored for a few years. The Aviation Artist is Gerald Asher and the Pencil work was done about 33 years ago for a Pentagon Art program. The Jenny represents a Barnstormer and the Boy was my now 37 year old Son. Needless to say this is one of Gerrys' early works but his pencil work was and I am sure still is Awesome!

Thanks Ed,
The Keepsake thing is exactly why I pulled it out of the closet. My Son Erich has expressed interest in Hanging this on my Grandsons wall  ;D By the way, Gerry is a Damn fine Modeler also!

That's a beautiful drawing, Rick!  What an exciting day that must have been for your son.  I'm glad it's out of the closet and on a wall where it belongs.
Cheers,
Bud

What a wonderful gift to pass along, Rick.  It's a lovely artwork.
It will look great up where it belongs, my friend.

Cheers,
Ernie :)
