|My name is Dave Jones but I paint under the name John D. Jones.
Being a member of the American Society of Aviation Artists I had three works accepted for their major exhibition in 2001 at the Canadian Aviation Museum in Ottawa. These exhibitions are not generally known for selling large numbers of works but I was pleased that one of my paintings was actually purchased by the museum to become part of their permanent collection. This painting "Over the Lines", a First World war scene, can also be seen in the gallery.
Since my Website was launched in 2000 I have re-joined the Guild of Aviation Artists and had a successful 2002 Annual exhibition selling two of the three paintings I had accepted. These can now be seen in the gallery. Over the past year I have completed a number of commissions, mainly World War 2 related subjects. Perhaps the most challenging of these was a painting depicting the Battle of Britain Memorial flight.
I have been chosen as one of the illustrators for Airfix here in the UK (15 cover illustrations contracted).
I am always open to commissions so if you do like my work and would like to discuss anything with a view to possibly having a unique painting for a loved one or as a treat for yourself I would love to hear from you.
