|Gavin Designed 2013 EAA AirVenture Event T-Shirt|
It will be an exciting event and there will be much to see. Although we have been to many air shows across the country over the last twenty (20) years, this is the "Mother of All Air Shows" and there will be more different and interesting aircraft than I have ever seen.
It is the Experimental Aircraft Association's event, the world's largest gathering of warbirds, aerobatics, ultra-lights, vintage and of course experimental home built aircraft - and more.
If you are an aviation buff check back to see what I may blog and check our site for any other aviation related posters or wearables you may like to purchase.

|Paul Gavin's 25th Anniversary Painting of Dana Point Harbor - in process|
Artist Paul Gavin is finishing his 25th Anniversary Painting of Dana Point Harbor and reproductions will soon be available. The new piece is an oil painting and like his watercolor painting Dana Dreams: An Endless Summer, the first of his Premier Coastal Series completed in 1988 the view is from above the Orange County Marine Institute looking across the Harbor toward's Dana Point, Capistrano Beach, and San Clemente with Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in the distance. However much has changed since then and the new piece shows them. The Marine Institute has been completely rebuilt and Brig Pilgrim, the Spirit of Dana Point and the R/V Sea Explorer are visible in the foreground. The harbor is alive with stand-up paddle boarders - (see Paul's Three Wise Men) (that have replaced the 1988 wind surfers) launching from Baby Beach - or Mom's Beach. Because it is an oil the new painting is also much brighter than the original Dana Dreams; the medium enables much stronger sense of light and life.
This new oil painting of the Dana Point Harbor also has a great story. Paul actually started it back in 1989 as part of project for another client but circumstances prevented his finishing it. Then this year one of Paul's clients Dana Point resident Steve Muller discovered the painting in his new building. He new Paul's work and that it was not finished and that it was the old harbor so brought it to Paul and asked if he would complete it. The timing was perfect as it also coincides with the upcoming 25th Anniversary of the City of Dana Point. Giclee reproductions of this image will be available in about three (3) weeks. Are you interested in one? Check back soon or better yet email Paul and Kimberleigh at info@GavinArts.com and get on the release list.
