It's hard to think of a more appropriate title for this 16" x 20" work of art than the one chosen by its creator. In Anticipation, world-renowned aviation artist Sam Lyons expertly illustrates the joyous expectation nearly any pilot would feel at the prospect of launching skyward in a magnificent little Piper J-3 Cub. The image's Cub is shown tied down outdoors not long after daybreak, the area behind the taildragger still shrouded in radiation fog. While airplane enthusiasts will applaud Lyons' faithfully accurate rendering of all of the J-3's iconic attributes, art lovers will savor his brilliant use of light and shadow, which adds incredible dimension to the illustration. In fact, more than a few observers will undoubtedly squint as they peruse the picture due to its remarkably realistic glare. The authentic characteristics of the morning sky, the bumpy surface, the remaining mist, and the treeline in the backdrop further augment the natural effect of the drawing.

This image is available as both an Artist Proof (limited to 30) and a signed & numbered Limited Edition print (limited to 300). Both versions are printed on acid-free paper, utilize first-rate permanent inks, and include a Certificate of Authenticity. An unspoiled glance at the pure beauty of grassroots aviation that's sure to have viewers eagerly awaiting their next trip aloft.
