On the Wind – The Wright Brother by Craig Kodera
“On the Wind” – The Wright Brothers by Craig Kodera, commemorates the first flight of the Wright Brothers and celebrates the birth of flight.
Aviation is this artist’s living. Painting is a joy and a choice; not his career. Craig Kodera career is as an airline pilot, so each of his paintings reflect an intimate knowledge of how it feels to fly and what it looks like out the cockpit. “I paint what I see,” he says,”and my office window is at 35,000 feet.” An appreciation of aviation came easy, since Kodera was raised in what he terms an “aviation family,” which included an uncle who flew with the famous Doolittle Raiders during World War II. At an age when most teens were trying to ace the driver’s test, Kodera had earned his private pilot’s license.
