Wow Jerry - whether the multi-month, multi WIP photo build....or, a single pic of a poignant scene - your work is inspiring and something to admire! I was about to say “strive for”....lol, yeah....haha - not likely. Thanks for posting a great scene.

Jim,Nick and Timbo,
Thanks guys were the very very nice words. Yes Tim,
those backdrops really give me fits when I paint them because it is extremely challenging for me. So I try to use them as often as possible! LoL

Somebody always has to pay the price.
I do not agree however with those that say "war never solved anything".
It solved Nazism. It also solved Slavery. I could go on.

Jerry,
The figure is brilliant, but the hair really sells it.
How do you do/what do you use for hair?

Excellent. Thank you for sharing. The brilliance of the cap highlights the desperation and yet the potential for hope in the future. You shall have my vote for a place in the “Shepard Paine Hall of Fame”
