Arrow 201

The high point of aviation in Canada - cancelled by government stupidity. At the time, it was certainly the most advanced aircraft in the world. The cancellation of the project put over 20,000 highly skilled people out of work, many of whom went to work for the US on the Space Program. A case could be made that, perhaps we couldn't afford an aircraft this sophisticated but...the Diefenbaker Conservative government ordered all the existing aircraft to be cut up and sold as scrap - when various buyers were offering to buy them at market value! This was a mind boggling act of vandalism. If I wasn't a taxpayer, I'd be amused by the fact that the present day Conservatives are about to get a pasting on the purchase of the American F-35s!

I have been an artist/illustrator working out of Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario for many years. I tend to specialize in historical and mechanical subject  matter, but I also enjoy doing portraits, murals, airbrush jobs or anything else that comes up. I work mostly in acrylics, oils, watercolours, graphite and ink. I can  take a photo if I have to, and can also do a bit of photo-retouching...but, mostly, I do things the traditional way.
