Below is my painting, which is based off of a photo I took at the Luzon Drop Zone in NC. Students were training for combat control, and this particular soldier was incredibly focused and alert.
This piece – along with many other works from artists around the country – is currently on exhibit at the National Museum of the Air Force in Dayton, Ohio from October 18 through the second week of January 2011.
Many thanks to the kind folks at Pope Air Force Base in NC and the Air Force Art Program Office – and of course, to the brave men and women serving our country. For more information regarding this art program and SILA, please visit: http://si-la.org/airforce.html
