    I put translucent acrylic behind the stores so if it is backlight it shows off better.

    Wonderful composition Bob. Very colorful as well, looks like you used the whole pallet. I look forward to seeing it in Atlanta and Tulsa.

    Bob, Gotta comment again, wow! The composition and color really captures an event which has probably been done in miniature for the first time.~Gary

    Gary, the real challenge was to create a convincing scene without the assistance of a painting as a reference. Since I am a painter I think that I approached this as a three dimensional painting. Research was also extremely important and once I had enough material to work with the composition fell together naturally. I also wanted a circus like atmosphere despite the gravity of the situation to emphasize French elan in those dire circumstances.

    Five months of work but I was sustained the entire time by the compelling nature of the subject. As grand as history may be sometimes small events that are relatively obscure or overshadowed can become epics in their own right when attention is drawn to them artistically.

    Thanks to everyone's kind comments. I hope folks will enjoy it if they get a chance to see it in person.
