Korean War Veterans Memorial

Painting - An Acrylic Painting With Acrylic And Water Soluable Oil Paint
My Goal for Decades has been to take you to places you may not have the opportunity to see... Where we can just see glimpses of the Creator, through HIS creations which have inspired our work. ...........................................................
visiting the Korean War Veterans Memorial several times, decided to do some Paintings. First created a Photograph, to use as a guide.
Then projected the image onto canvas, and sketched it on the canvas. Saves a lot of time doing it this way. Then, painted them black and silver acrylic and water soluble oil paint. To finish them painted 12-14 coats of clear acrylic paint over the painting so that the finished work would look like it had been etched in Black Marble like the walls at the Korean War Veterans Memorial....
These were than photographed with a Nikon Professional Digital Camera for Fine Art America. None of the Originals are for Sale. Each one is auctioned off and the profit goes to support the Orphanage in Korea, the the 5th Regimental Combat Team raised the money to build, then built. The 5th RCT Association has continued to help support the Orphanage in Seoul ever since the Korean War.
If you are ever in the Washington DC area, make sure to visit the Korean War Veterans Memorial. In it there are larger than life statues, about seven feet tall. As during the Korean War, there was little color film used for photographs, it seems appropriate to create this art in black and white. For the only photos we remember during the Korean War were in black and white. It most reminds me of Korea, when there is snow on the ground at twilight the figures seem almost ghostly.
