Crayons and Airplanes

July 22, 2008 at 12:55 pm

I just read a touching story about an airline flight attendant who passed out crayons and paper mats to her passengers, encouraging them to draw during their flight.

And draw they did! And then she would display the impromptu art in the plane for the other passengers to enjoy. She’s working on an exhibit of the drawings for the Los Angeles International Airport.

What I most loved reading about was how making art allowed everyone to relax and brought the passengers together. Art triumphs over the inconveniences and indignities of modern travel.

Here’s a link to the L.A. Times story.

How to Buy a Painting Late summer shows

Barbara J Carter

I'm an artist. I make paintings with dots.

I work in acrylic paint, in a couple of distinct styles: landscapes and abstracts.

Native to California, I've lived elsewhere and only recently returned to my home state. I now live in Los Angeles.

I mostly show my art in outdoor festivals in California. I also occasionally show my work in art galleries or open studio events. You can see an up-to-date list of upcoming shows on my website (click here).

I invite you to sign up to receive my free email newsletter, in which I list my upcoming shows and talk about my latest work. I send it irregularly, a few times a year.
