The world looks strikingly — and beautifully different — through the window of an airplane flying thousands of feet above it. The artist Jim Darling captures the wonder of seeing places we thought we knew from this angle, in a series of paintings where gorgeous aerial views of cities, bodies of water, mountains, and plains are framed within those distinctive windows. Darling’s renderings, which we spotted via iGNANT, range from dreamy yet realistic to nearly abstract, but each captures the experience of surveying Earth from such a great height.
