Nocturne in Blue and Dust

Here is my first "nocturne" in my combat art career-- an oil sketch on mounted linen, 14" x 11".

It's from last year in Helmand Province, as a convoy of MRAPs moved at dusk in the distance somewhere west of Garmsir, kicking up dust under a full moon and dark blue sky.

It was one of those scenes that sticks in your head, when artistic and professional sensibilities come together to make an image that should be made into art.
