This painting done on actual coconut tree fiber depicts a Martin M-130 coming into dock beneath the fronds of tropical coconut palms. This aircraft was better known as the China Clipper, the Hawaii Clipper and the Philippine Clipper during the Golden Age of Aviation. With the advent of their flights, the dream of exotic locales became known to the masses and a reality to a chosen few. These Clippers and their travels are still looked upon as the true essence of the romance of flight. Original in private collection. Contact the artist for a similar commission.
