In my very first post on this thread, almost nine years ago now, I shared two watercolor paintings by Nixon Galloway. He had created them for a series of 43 prints that United Airlines sent to customers who were enrolled in their Executive Air Travel Program, which was the precursor to MileagePlus.  Thanks to the generosity of several former United Airlines Executives who were intimately involved with these programs (indeed, they created them), I was able able to add several more of the Nixon Galloway/United Airlines paintings to my collection.  Here is one of them, the Curtiss Falcon.  The print that appears in the photograph is dated 1973.

These are larger paintings, with the image size measuring approximately 17″ x 25″, and 24″ x 32″ overall.  If any readers of this thread know the whereabouts of other Galloway paintings from this series, please send me a PM, and thanks for looking!

Kurt & Sunny – thanks much for your comments!  I think Marcin created the painting on aluminum board to try to highlight the metallic finish of the Mig.  It didn’t come in a frame Sunny, but the aluminum board is so thick it won’t flex (yes, it’s heavy), and the artist did a nice job applying a protective coat over the finished painting.  

Hello. I was visiting the local store for artists, so I also went to the store nearby where they make frames. They say there shouldn’t be any problem with framing an aluminum board. The suggest a solid wooden frame or a metal one without glass and passe partout. The painting itself weighs 3.5 pounds. I could experiment with the LiM-2 on aluminum that I still haven’t sold and frame it. 🙂
