The Jobs of Yesteryear series combines history and surrealism to tell the stories of obsolete jobs. A contemporary glimpse into the past, these mixed media paintings serve as a reminder of time and stories long forgotten.

This particular Job of Yesteryear mixed media painting features a barnstormer. Barnstormers were aerial daredevils who pushed the limits of what could be done with a plane in the 1920’s. Curtiss “Jenny” biplanes were the industry standard and these daring men and women would walk across the top wing with bags over their heads or hang from tethers dangling from the bottom wings. Barnstormers became mostly obsolete in the 1930’s when a series of high-profile crashes led to tougher safety regulations, which were virtually impossible for barnstormers to meet.

The Jobs of Yesteryear are thought-provoking conversation pieces that will bring an air of history and whimsy to any room.
