Skydiver's Painting

Here is another painting that my dad, Wlliam Trotter did. This is one of some skydivers taking a jump over Zephyrhills, Florida. As thrilling as this might appear to be...it is one thing that I would never like to try ever! I would be afraid something would go wrong, and the shute would not open. Or...I would freeze up, and not be able to find the ripcord. LOL Has anyone ever gone skydiving?

I don't think I could take the jump out of a plane/helicopter

We lived near a skydiving field years back. It was fun to watch, but too expensive for me to try. Oh, frightening? Yeah.

You mean this is painting, really, not a photo. The canvass is the farm fields below

He painted it all. Even the farm fields. I have hundred's of paintings to share. I will get around eventually to them. The icon I have on myLot is also a painting that he did. If you want to scroll down my previous posts, I have already shared some of his work already. He is so gifted that his painting does look like photos many times.

I love the picture. I have never had any desire to go skydiving, though. I love being on an elevated place and looking down at the patchwork of fields and farms.

I like seeing them in an airplane. It is so cool. Hard to believe how big it gets, the closer we get to the ground.
