The Getaway
The Getaway
13 x 11.5"

Getaway definition:

an act or instance of getting away: as

a :  an escape, esp. from a dangerous situation

b :  start

c :  a place where one escapes for relaxation, vacation, etc., or a period of time for such recreation.

The ambiguity in my picture is intentional. Escape? Or a new start? It does show a place where one might escape to for a period of time.

Hello Hank;

Very nice work. I love the Ayn Rand inspired pieces.

I found you while looking for AS text about "frozen trains", coincidentally now in the news. Also saw your rocket launch painting.

I suppose it's a bit presumptuous to offer suggestions on subjects, but someday, I hope someone does a piece of good art showing a Saturn V launch in a way I've never seen. Something that really shows the immense scale of the event.

Toward the end of the first stage burn, the flame from the rocket blossoms out bright red. You can find pictures and video of it. But except for a few bad videos that only suggest what is really going on, the picture is cropped tight, so you see mainly the rocket and maybe only 500 feet or so of the flame. But I believe for a brief instant, that flame may have been a half mile, or maybe a mile long, and surely hundreds of feet wide.

To really show the scale of such a thing, you would see a teeny rocket, dwarfed by its gigantic tail of flame. Maybe seen from the side, horizon in the distance, the sky already mostly black, crossing over into the fuzzy edge of space.

Anyway, it's an image I can't get out of my head. I only wish I could paint.

Seeing your Frozen Train piece that came back to mind. The immensity of the landscape and sky, nearly swallowing a tiny train and headlight going on forever.

Again, very nice work!

Hi Dennis,

Thank you very much for the compliment on my Ayn Rand inspired works.

Don't know about the Saturn V launch. Probably wouldn't do it unless it means a lot to me. Might look into it to see.

Thanks again,
