Well it took a while, but I have finished this tribute piece to Vietnam veterans. I call it “Run for the Wall“.
It depicts three Vietnam veterans at the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington DC. They are doing a rubbing of a name on a dollar bill. They were there as part of a motorcycle ride to the Wall by a large number of Vietnam veterans.
The photographic source for this art quilt is one of the Vietnam veterans depicted. He is a friend of mine and his name is Mike Guerin. He is the vet in the middle.
It took a while for me to finish this piece, but I wanted to get it right. I am proud of the way it turned out. I hope to get it in some shows this next year and remind viewers that freedom isn’t free.
