Artist Notes: In The World 9: On The Taconic and Near Baghdad contrasts a view off the Taconic Parkway, NY, with an Iraqi man tending sheep near Baghdad. The contrast is now the serene lands with the terror from the sky in Iraq. A US helicopter is involved in a raid on a nearby village. The Iraq scene is based on a press photo by Jacob Silberberg. The painting is acrylic on stretched canvas on heavy duty stretchers, with painted sides. A frame is not necessary.
