I was challenged by a Gallery owner to do this work. At first it seemd a daunting task but after the agony of two months there was the ecstacy of this completed work.The gallery owner bought it for his own collection. Prints of this painting (any size up to A1) can be arranged on request.
My first encounter with aircraft occurred way back during 1944 when an Anson did a forced landing in Murraysburg, a little town in the Karoo. Although I was only 5 years old at the time it triggered a lasting interest in flying and aircraft. Most of my younger days were spent building and flying model aircraft while my friends were playing rugby or tennis. Inside of me were pictures of aircraft crying to find expression in reality. Painting aircraft gives me tremendous joy and satisfaction. My creativity also brings me into contact with very interesting people, especially pilots and other like minded artists. I am self-taught, a talent I received from the Lord for which I am very grateful. As a committed Christian large part of my proceeds are ploughed back into the support of missionaries.Cornelius Christoffel Bothma
