Original Painting Thea Robertshaw, The Scream The Scream

“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.
