“The Sound” came from a recurring nightmare. I heard the sound of a bomber coming closer and closer, its engines roaring louder and louder. Then I see a lone child. She can’t move or run. The child sees there is no escape. She stands frozen. She covers her ears and screams and screams. I wake up in a fright. How can I paint that sound? How can I paint her gut-wrenching fear? How can I paint the horrors of war into a single painting? Would I be successful? People tell me they can’t pull their eyes away from my finished painting. They’re speechless.
