Little Bit of History Series - 02


One of the guys in the photo was an army buddy of my father’s during WWII.  This piece is very personal to me.  Art is a good way to express what is on one’s mind.  I hear from many artists about using a photo that is a family or personal image.  Many people can’t use the original.  I tend to just go ahead with the original and not worry about it.  After all who is going to inherit them anyway and would they really care much about the original.  Photos tend to hang out in a box and no one cares years later.  I say go ahead and use them.
