Great picture. I lost my dad 5 years ago. He was a B-24 Ball Turret Gunner on a B-24 with 43 missions before being captured. He was the last surviving member of his crew. Right before he passed away we took him to the AF Museum at Wright Patterson and got a picture of him and a granddaughter and 3 greatgrandsons in front of the B-24 there which had been in his squadron. I am on the board of directors for the Missouri POW/MIA Museum currently under construction (we are remodeling a 1800's cavalry officers duplex and bringing it back to code and historical standards.) I will recommend to the board that we purchase a copy of this for the museum. Again - beautiful job. (ruetschray@aol.com)

I see this image almost everyday when I look at my husband. He lost 6 good friends May 19th 2007 in Iraq when an IED hit their Bradley. Very beautiful work. Definitely brought tears to my eyes...

Kyle - thanks for the kind comments. This was my present to my Dad for his 90th birthday . . . he is now 91. His experiences during WWII and Korea are still very fresh in his mind. Thank you for your service also.

Bob, I love it! What talent you have! What medium did you use? I was trying to figure out if you used watercolor, acrylic or oil.....let me know if you have time.....WOW!

Karen Wilson replied:

Thanks! This painting was done with oil on canvas. The background and curtains were painted in, then the ghost figures outlined in chalk and glazed over the background. If I had to do the painting over again, I probably would have painted all the figures first, then glazed the backgound.

Excellent work! How many Army Aircorp, GI's and Seaman have toasted their fallen comrades?

Karen Wilson replied:

Thanks. While doing the research for this painting I ran across an old episode of M.A.S.H. where Col Potter, who was in WWI, toasted his lost comrades. It's a very touching subject.
