This canvas pretty much fills up my small studio, making it seem even more immense than it is.

Title: Old Wars, New Wars, End of War
Inspiration: NIN: 12 Ghosts II, The Doors: The End, NIN: A Warm Place

Plans: Let me preface this by saying that my reference point for an old war is Vietnam. Obviously I know there are much older wars, but I am looking at this from my point of view, not an historical point of view. I plan on dividing this canvas into thirds. The divisions will not be obvious, and one will flow into the next.
I will start with Vietnam at the bottom, flow up to the desert wars, and then, at the very top, have an explosion, or something that resembles my work, Great Cities.
I admit, this is a very pessimistic view of humanity and war because I am saying the war the will end wars is nuclear. But, a lot of times, that is the way it seems.
