(Thought’s from the Artist) When I was a kid I joined the Navy as a cook. On my first ship, we set sail in the Pacific. I knew how to make scrambled eggs, but sailing to Hawaii was something that I just trusted the Captain and Commanders knew how to do. The yellow bottles represent the officers in the Navy with their "scrambled eggs" on the brim of their hats. The clear syrup bottle represents me, a lowly cook in the Navy. “Sentries” is about trusting authority that has been placed over each one of us for our benefit and in the services they provide. If I had to set sail for a destination in the Navy, I would have been lost and eventually shark food, which is weird to say, because the cook would become a meal.

This original oil painting is framed in a bronze "floater frame" which will look incredible in your home or office.
