I look forward to the Reno air racers every year. This year had some of the best racing, records were broken, and champions crowned. Sadly we lost one of the major players in the sport early in the week. One of my favorite sport class planes was the GP-5, an up and coming very promising sport class aircraft. I did a caricature of her last year and was looking for her to do really well this year. Leading up to race week I had started to do a different sort of art work. Something other than my usual side views and the GP -5 was the subject. Drawing from some fantastic air to air photos by Tyson Rininger and taking a page from a fellow artist, Ron Cole, I decided to finish this art work while I watched the live feed from this weeks races. So as a tribute to a fine racer… Blue Skies always….
