"Green Pastures Gang" 24" x 30" - oil
The painting above is one of six paintings that will be making its way to the Art at the Mill event in Millwood, VA. Although the show doesn't start for a few weeks (April 23rd), I thought I should get these pieces in the mail before I go on my next big "field trip" with the United States Air Force Art Program.
Have you started scratching your head yet and asking yourself "gee, where is Steven off to this time?" Well folks this time I'm in sunny, sunny Belize documenting the humanitarian mission of the USAF. I'll be here for about two weeks with a team of medical personnel that will be going from town to town to cater to many of the medical needs of the Belizean citizens.
Although it is beautiful here this trip is not all about fun and games. Believe it or not Belize is actually a third world country. It really shows once you drive inland and away from the tourist sites. Despite their situation the people of Belize seem to have a remarkably positive outlook on life. This is the kind of mission that can really make you thankful for what you have.
