Artist's Description

Oil on Canvas
Commission for the Chicago Police Department
Displayed in Chicago Police Headquarters
Officer mourning the loss of two partners in a shootout downtown.

I had been working on a memorial, sculpting, for slain police officers in NYC, and the Chicago PD asked me to paint this. We got permission from the officer here, who had answered a call with his partner and a previous partner. They were ambushed, he was the only survivor. A friend took this photograph at their funerals. There’s a lot in here that’s not so clearly shown, the state flag and flower, the details of the church yard. It was a very rough time for this officer, and for Chicago.
