This abstract piece is a reflection on the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, the day that President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed to be "a date which will live in infamy." The surprise attack by the Japanese Imperial Navy came in waves, each one designed to disable the American fleet stationed on that base. War has seemed as inevitable and unstoppable as breakers on a beach. I was moved by the purple of valor and the red of sacrifice as predominant colors in this painting, which is dedicated to all the lives that have been touched by war.
