The Shape of War

On the third day I painted this horrible painting, “The Shape of War.” The image is the Pentagon (and the airplane wings) exploding in the midst of what had been a tranquil fall day in Washington D.C. War, all war, is horrific and artists sometimes are called to help us see horrific things we as humans do. Again, using artistic license, I placed the dome of the Capitol building with the flag flying in the background.
