We are saddened by the sudden, tragic loss of MCAS Tustin Hangar 1. We have honored these beautiful wooden structures for decades in our artwork including twice lighting them up like Paris cathedrals in 1993 from dusk til dawn as a tribute to these magnificent structures as art and to honor the men and women that served there.
World War II
War and Memory
On June 6, 1944, the world held its breath as over a half-million men from all over the world converged on 65 miles of the Omaha Beach, coast to free Europe from Hitler's grip. In 1984 I felt the need to be there for the 40th Anniversary of D-Day, and painted throughout France for the month of June.
June 10th was my birthday. A tradition had been established to spend my birthdays on the beach, so that day I returned to Omaha Beach and painted the eerily quiet scene above one of the bunkers.
