Barefoot Veteran



Barefoot Veteran

Proud,
disappointed,
too tired
to be angry,
anymore.

Remembering
propaganda
a younger,
courageous,
optimistic man
once believed. 


My thoughts while sketching “GE” as he posed in a costumed figure session I attended yesterday afternoon.

11”x 15” ink and watercolor

  1. Oh the freedom of going barefoot!
    But with this freedom comes the connotation of past tragedy...it is clearly freedom hard won.
    The truth is there in his eyes...the memories he wishes could be wiped out...
    So deeply moving...:)

    1. Freedom for some… Or an unexpected lack of choice? He played the part well..
