A SOARING FLIGHT OF FANCY
lands one boy at the realization that outgrowing your toys doesn’t necessarily mean outgrowing your imagination.Grown-up Charles dreams of a plane that forms letters in the air, taking him to “fabulous lands where warm breezes blew, and everything shone with diamond light.” Why not? For in the world of his childhood anything was possible. Dreamlike paintings chronicle this journey into a young boy’s mind as misty colors drift into one another and toys spring to action as reality blends with fantasy, and the past with the present.
