Up In The Air

If there is only one requirement I have while flying, it’s that I must have a window seat. I feel claustrophobic without it – and I just love staring out the window, admiring the dreamy cloud formations and vast landscapes below. So it’s no wonder that I absolutely adore these artist Jim Darling‘s airplane window seat paintings. It’s amazing how he’s able to achieve that three-dimensional quality by layering wood and acrylic paint. Makes you wanna hop on a plane and travel, no?

    Wow, those paintings are so beautiful! I think they represent the feeling of looking out of a plane window and seeing something magical rather than the actual landscape. I love this post!

    That’s so funny, because I’m completely the opposite. Unless I’m sitting with my family, which means we take up the whole row, I must sit in the aisle seat so I can get up whenever I want. These paintings though are really cool and incorporating them with the window is so unique. Love them!

    Wow. As a window seat lady myself, I can definitely appreciate a good view. These are great. I like that the views aren’t literal interpretations; they have a mystical element to them. Thanks for sharing!
