The Things We Carry

This montage of daily paintings is based on the book The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien. In the book Mr. O'Brien writes about the Vietnam War, it's aftermath, and what the soldiers actually carried in their backpacks and the emotions they carried both during and after the war. After reading the book, I was intrigued by what women carry in their pocketbooks both actual and emotional. I'm pleased that this painting was awarded 1st place at the 60th annual Stockade Villager's Art Show in Schenectady this past Saturday.
