“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Edmund Burke

I feel I should give some small explanation to this set of images. After all they are not my normal artistic landscapes or story book buildings. However, what is taking place in Ukraine has weighed on my mind for the last few days.

And while I am too far away to fight. Plus the fact that if they gave me a gun I would likely shoot myself in the foot. I felt the need to express my feelings at what is happening in that troubled part of the world.

My hope is that no members of our little community are offended by my work. I have tried to minimize political focus (Say of in one) and focus on the people who have found themselves in this Maelstrom. So I hope you all take these works for what they are, an artist giving voice to events happening in the here and now.

Normal service will return next postings.
