For those of you who don't care ... this is an abstract composition based on a small part of an airplane.
For my aircraft-crazy friends ... This Grumman F6F Hellcat is being restored by the Flying Heritage Collection here at Paine Field. Click Here to read about this specific plane and see a bunch of pictures of the whole thing!
They're working on the plane right out on the showroom floor, as it were, so we've had the opportunity to see it in pieces and at various stages in the restoration process. If you have any questions, ask Bill. All I know is that it's dark blue and the wings fold up.

It is a great abstract and the color and shine on the piece on the right is terrific. But the Hellcat is a special aircraft. It gave the U.S. air superiority and went a long way towards winning the war in the Pacific. In should be noted that the word hellcat was used in the 1957 movie "Hellcats of the Navy" starring a fellow named Ronald Reagan and his wife Nancy Davis. You remember Ronnie, don't you Tara? Our first acting president.

Only you could make a bunch of holes so interesting...a shot of the whole plane would probably leave these unnoticed.It is wonderful to have a restoration on the 'doorstep' and be able to follow along.Closest I got was when we demolished and rebuilt the Bowling Alley.I took photos almost every day for 18 months, from old Bowling Alley, to vacant lot, to shiny new Bowling Alley.It takes a lot longer to restore a plane though....thanks for another 'different' view, and a most informative link. 10/10
