This dramatic painting depicts the Rockwell B-1B, armed with cruise missiles, performing its mission role as a low level penetrating bomber. As this powerful aircraft approaches the speed of sound, the 123,000 lb. thrust of its turbofan engines is unleashed against the still waters of a northern lake.
The first in a series of dramatic aviation paintings by Dru Blair, each print is hand-signed by the artist. Also available as an unsigned 11x14 print for $40.
"Power" is carefully reproduced on 100 lb. Archival Stock, each print is individually signed and inspected by the artist for color consistency and accuracy. An edition of 100 signed and numbered artist proofs are available for $165 in the 24" x 33" format. A medium sized print is also offered for $40.00.
"Power" is also available as a Giclée (pronounced "zhee-clay'), which refers to a 7-color print which utilizes the latest in digital technology to reproduce art with breathtaking accuracy. This is the largest and most expensive version of our print line, usually measuring an overall 42" inches wide, and printed on museum quality Hahnemuhle paper for $495. A near perfect replica of the original painting, Giclée prints are limited to only 50 examples of each image, and are created for the most discriminating collectors.
A special thanks to our customers who have made Power the number one selling aviation print in the world since 1989
