The Impatient Passengers

The Impatient Passengers, mixed media on canvas, 10"x10”

It never fails to amuse me the way as soon as the plane lands, some passengers feel they have to whip out their phones and call someone, anyone, to announce that they have landed. If you didn’t know better, you might think some dignitary has landed for a state visit. And then we get to the gate. The plane doors are still closed, yet so many leap up, struggle to yank down their luggage and stand in the aisle waiting, and waiting, and waiting. On my most recent flight there was a problem with the jetway at our gate at LAX. The plane was early but all the passengers had to wait an extra 20 minutes. They all remained standing. And this is why I prefer a window seat and just read my book.
