it's a scary vision indeed and something that artists feel and fear. I know I have felt it in dreams. I think you communicated the prophetic vision of the invaders very well. I feel it from your picture that they are well equipped and unmerciful. Congratulations on a very successful conveyance.

Thanks for you'r comments Gzairborne. It got me thinking about Christmas 1977 that spent in Northern Ireland when I painted it. Funny what sticks in your mind. Origanally it was messing about trying to paint mountains but they looked like roof tops and one thing led to another.

Yes, well done fmc. Perspective is so difficult for me still. I wanted to spend more time in this area last year, but veered off to put it on 2011.
