Wisconsin Artist Earns 'Best Of Show' In EAA Sport Aviation Art Contest

"South American Glory" by Thomas J. Kalina Takes First Place

Thomas J. Kalina of Racine, Wisconsin, won the Best of Show award and the top prize of $1,000 in the 2005 EAA Sport Aviation Art Contest. His entry, "South American Glory," depicts a Douglas DC-7B taking off in the early evening light.

Four other category winners took home $250 awards and included Ardell Bourgeois, Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada -- "James Allen Ward, VC" -- Warbirds category; Leon Basler, Bismarck, North Dakota -- "Lifting the Spirit" -- Sport Aviation; M. Randall Mytar, Sherman Oaks, California -- "Fly Fishing" -- Vintage; and Ron Hart, Bend, Oregon -- "Manned Flight" -- Open Bourgeois' entry illustrated a British airman on the wing of an in-flight Vickers Wellington Mk.IC. bomber attempting to douse a wing fire caused by enemy flak. Basler's entry depicted a solitary glider soaring above a canyon.

Mytar's entry was a watercolor showing a man and child fishing while perched on the float of a Piper J-3 Cub.

Hart's entry shows a man "standing" on a large paper airplane as is soars over an open field.
