Sacrifice – Operation Iraqi Freedom

Certainly the biggest painting I’ve done is one to commemorate the wounded U.S. soldiers from Operation Iraqi Freedom.

In this painting I placed one dollop of paint for every wounded soldier according to the month in which they were wounded. This created a 15 foot long painting with bands of color representing each month. The bands differ in width based on the number of wounded per month and with over 30,000 dollops of paint it creates a stunning look at the war.

This painting debuted in the West Seattle Art Walk and you can read more about it in this article from the West Seattle Herald.
