61-Delta classmate Ken Brodeen Bainbridge and Reese has retired from a busy San Antonio real estate career...
to fully exercise his unique skills and training as an artist.

His website has information about the artist, his training, as well as his artistic talent on display with various of his works.

This is an example of an aircraft work titled "Thirsty Huns"


but the majority of his work captures something much more serene and quieter than aircraft.

Living in Texas for the last 40 years, Ken is still fascinated by the spaciousness of rural areas...
...and strives to portray their heart and soul as in his work "Bend In The Road":

Take some time to look at Ken's website to appreciate his talent for doing just that.
