VFW USS Gudgeon

1006 Magnolia Blvd, Burbank, CA
April 2022

Every project brings a different challenge. When I was invited to propose a piece for the VFW, I understood they wanted to bring the hall to the attention of the community because sometimes the place was missed. I brought a visual solution that is easy to recognize and combined the emblems that represent the values of the veterans. Personally, I had good friends who were war veterans. Although they recently passed, I thought about them when painting this mural for VFW and know they would be proud. Also, I became an American citizen four years ago, and was delighted to be able to present a patriotic theme.
