Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan

I created this painting for the Windows and Mirrors exhibit that has traveled the US which has provided an environment to discuss the human cost of the war in Afghanistan.  I admire the American Friends Service Committee for their dedication to peace and the way they have integrated the arts in their outreach and education. It has now come to the Bay Area and there are events listed below.
