Pencil/color pencil portrait drawing of a U.S. Soldier receiving a Silver Star upon his return from Afghanistan.

My drawing for today, August 18, 2010 is inspired by Staff Sgt. Jarrett D. Brown.

What does the Army’s third-highest award for valor, the Silver Star look like?

    Your war / Our war should be mandatory viewing. This is a perfect feeling of the real-un real that is America’s ambivalence to what is happening. All my best to you, Cara!

  • Thank you…your comments mean a great deal to me because you have shared your feelings and I feel that my art and the project that I a dedicated to for my brother so therefore it is my brother who is the one who deserves the credit for all that I do in this gallery, for giving me focus, for giving me direction and for giving me hope in the human being, in life, and that even though I had ambivalence…his dedication to his country, to his belief in what is intrinsically good, and his unerring and rigorous faith in all people is why I knew and continue to know that the Our War series is one that makes my life more meaningful with each new day.
    Thank you for your recognition of this…you see it and I thank you for understanding how important it is for me personally-I feel from your words that it is important for you as well on a person level.
    All my best to you my artist friend.
