this is beautiful...in so many powerful ways. I hate it when kids get hurt, and for someone to do it deliberately...grgh, i wanna go kill the already dead suicide bomber! :pissed:

You have a great talent. Keep it up! ^^

this was such a powerful photograph, and you've captured the mood of it beautifully. i esp like the distressed texture. i just wish it was a little more obvious that was a soldier carrying the child...

These are great. You should do more traditional printing. I'd love a print of this or the Veteran...or the first untitled, :heart: them all :D

this reminds about a photo i saw of a soldier carrying a badly injured baby in a blanket with blood stains. i have always wanted to paint this, but i didn't feel strong enough. it would just remind me of my helplessness in front of war and human violence.

It could be the same picture that inspired me too!
That photo took my breath away.
