After watching a History Channel show about The Battle of Normandy years ago, I painted this. It's The Angel of Death sitting on the hill above the beach at Normandy in 1944, waiting for Allied forces to land. In its hand is a scroll with the names of the men who will die.
This was one of those events in history that seemed pre-destined. But at the moment of landing, I wonder if the soldiers knew it. They probably did, and fought bravely to end a terrible war.
Thank you Veterans for your service.
