This is the fourth of five drawings with gun powder, torch, and wood burner that I've done. The fifth one isn't done yet, but it is called Diana and Her Hound. It is beautiful, and I hope to finish it without wrecking it. This drawing, Tankers' Nightmare, has heavy content for me, but I feel safe sharing here--just as I did at the Gathering I attended.

I, and perhaps every person who has sat in a tank, is the guy on the left who is struggling with the two demons, friends and family. How do we atone for death and misdeeds when we die in battle? How do we help others who die there sleep peacefully? Where does that energy go?

The tank is in the center at the bottom, and the faces just appeared as I made the drawing. I accentuated the faces at the bottom because I thought the drawing needed it.

This is fascinating, Mark. I want to see the next one. While I know you explained how you use the gun powder, I am challenged to really "get it". Surely your experiences bring the uniqueness of the spiritual context of your paintings, along with the use of gun powder and the fact that you would even attempt using it. Thanks for sharing and making us think. Please post next one when complete.
