Fly Away with Me

Dallas oil painting by artist Trae Mundt. Light brown teddy bear pilot with leather jacket and epalutes epaulettes. White aviation shirt and black tie. Desert scene with one airplane landing and another plane taking off.

 

It was a Friday when my husband called and asked me to join him for dinner. He wanted to take me to my favorite restaurant in San Antonio, Texas. I was home in Santa Clarita, California. If I hurried I could get to LAX in time to fly standby with him. What was so wonderful about this invitation was that my husband was literally flying me to Texas. He was the Captain. It was so much fun. The flight crew spoiled me. My smoked sirloin dinner was absolutely delicious. If you ever get a chance to dine at Texas Land & Cattle Steakhouse you won't be disappointed!!

I can't tell you how many times my friends have asked me, "When are you going to paint a pilot teddy bear?" I'm excited to introduce "Dallas." This teddy bear loves peanuts and pretzels. He also loves good weather.

Where's the bear paw?

  • I just love Dallas and the story you shared! It made me think of the times a certain friend and her husband flew me out to visit. My experience flying has been very limited, however, they treated me, both coming and going, to first class seats and personal escorts through the airport and security. I truly felt like an Airport Princess!

    Dallas reminds me quite a bit of a pilot friend I have had the honor of getting to know; I think he likes pretzels and peanuts as well.
