Off on a plane
As you are reading this I am on a plane on my way to spend a week with my parents and siblings in Adelaide. I am not the only one in the air, as we speak, my brother from the USA is also on his way, he arrives tomorrow morning. I haven't seen him since 2007, so it will be a very exciting week. I can't wait.
Thanks to modern technology I have scheduled in some blogging that will appear whilst I am away!! I have been busy preparing blogs so my blog doesn't stay empty for a week and get lonely!!! I will be able to read all your wonderful comments via my phone internet (hint hint) or on my brothers computer - so I can still stay in touch (and read your blogs, which I love to do).
As this is Art Wednesday I thought I would have a theme on aviation. However when I started searching for aviation art all I could find was artworks with bomber planes blowing up things. Some were quite nice, but I thought not for tonight (too boyish). So I decided to look at early aviation posters - I love old posters, the art was often simple (not to get in the way of the message) but far more interesting than modern advertising. Check out the ones below (artists are unknown, often they are long forgotten as this was their job). I particular like the Art Deco poster and the last one (Flying Dutch Air Lines). Don't you think these were far more classier than modern advertising.
