Discovery Retires


by
Armand Cabrera

My friend Gary and I went and  watched the Discovery land at Dulles Airport  today. We were lucky and were right under the flight path for three fly overs. It landed on the third pass and we had a great view on an overpass near the end of the runway. I was happy to see so many people turn out for the event. It will be interesting to see how the privatization of space will work now going forward with companies like SpaceX .

 I will start and finish a large oil painting from a small sketch painted outdoors. If you are in the area come on by and watch and ask questions about the painting process or the business side of being a professional artist. Last time we had quite a turnout with over 75 people showing up.
