Artist Gives Us a Painted View From Above

For those who wish to travel more but life keeps getting in the way, Jim Darling gives us the next best thing until that day comes. Layering wood and acrylic paint and framing it with a mockup window of a plane, Darling creates an abstract and softer version of landscapes and sceneries seen from above capturing views from all angles including the occasional wing. From frolicking hills to soft blue skies, the series provides a window to our beautiful world as a reminder to get out to see them firsthand from our own window seat on the plane.
