The first Boeing 314, Honolulu Clipper, entered regular service on the San Francisco – Hong Kong route in January 1939. A one-way trip on this route took over six days to complete. Commercial passenger service lasted less than three years, ending when the United States entered World War II in December 1941.

I have been creating…it seems my whole life.

I am who I am.

Maybe at times I see things just a tad bit different…from the norm.

I have enjoyed learning how to do my artwork all on my own.

If someone else can do it…I will certainly try…and I will put my own twists and turns into my work to make it truly my own.

As I said…I am who I am…and I am ME!
