War is hell-mosul

A very down note this last day of the yr. 12 x 20 on canvas panel. Continuing my WAR IS HELL series.
Maybe next yr I can morph into something less intense or morbid. Like flowers.

Well done. Very evocative of the futility of war.

Re: War is hell-mosul

Do I see a dog there with the man? At least they survived!
I really like the painting though it is sad.
Prayers for peace in 2018...

Re: War is hell-mosul

Thx for all the comments. And yes, the subject is depressing but the events are real.
