Patron: Darlene Petersen in Loving Memory of Dean L. Petersen
The inspiration for Plane and Plains comes from my parents. My Father loved flying and served in WWII, where he went to Hiroshima after the blast. When I was a child, he flew a little two seat Aeronca Champ that he always called “The Champ”. As a teenager, we travelled all over Nebraska to visit friends and family in a Cessna 172. My Mother is a seamstress and quilter. The Nebraska surface and fields from above always make me think of patchwork quilts.
The photo was taken by me and is an area somewhere north of Seward. Farms, ranches, fields, trees and light rolling hills are shown.
