New Painting

This gent was a guard at the Crossed Swords monument one day. Although he didn't speak English and we didn't speak Arabic, he was intent on showing us around the place, making sure that we knew where Saddam had stood and that we got good pictures. He was a very proud man who had certainly lived a rough life. In this painting, I focused on the stress that he continues to endure in his life.

What a great painting. Yes, I see the tiredness --it all comes through.
