"Clipper, Winslow Bound"
Painting dimensions 24" x 30" arcylic on gessoboard
In October 1938, the first Boeing 314 Clipper was flown From it's home berth at Mathews Beach on Lake Washington, to Eagle Harbor in the town of Winslow Washington. Now in it's final three tail configuration, the aircraft would be hauled out of the water by workers of the Winslow Marine Railways and Ship Building Co. for it's final weighing before the CAA started their testing. This weighing was critical to the success of the 314 program. If the aircraft was as little as 2% over the specified empty weight, Pan Am could have demanded a reduced purchase price, or even cancelled the order. The actual weight was within 50 lbs of the target weight of 52,000 lbs. The painting depicts the Clipper passing close by the art deco streamlined ferry M/V Kalakala, bound for Bremerton, Washington. The upper lines of the Kalakala were in large part designed by layed off Boeing model maker Louis Proctor, who would go on to create models of the 314 for Boeing.
