Oil on Canvas, Barbed Wire
Engineer Stake and Mine Sign
44 x 48
"In coming up with subject matter to best artistically record images that I saw in Bosnia, I looked for common everyday things. Things that the troops would remember twenty years from now. One of the things I saw that I know will impress me the rest of my life, was the presence of minefields—many minefields." Col. Gary N. "Butch" Cassidy.
This assemblage; painting, engineer stake, barbed wire, and Mine sign can in no way show the vast amount of denied area that exists in Bosnia. The fields once plowed by farmers have turned to weeds and a killing ground.
Col. Cassidy said, " The advice the troops pass along is as simple as it is wise: Stay on the hardtop and if you didn’t drop it, don’t pick it up."
