Artist: Jose DeHoyos
Medium: Acrylic paint on window pane
Size: 19″ by 32″
Notes: “As a former Marine, I felt that I needed to represent and express my own experiences in the military. I have always been inspired by military history, especially the Marine Corps’ history. I am part of a group of veterans called “Artful Warriors” at one of the Dryhootch organizations. My goal is to use my “Artful” talents to help other veterans in dealing with PTSD. I use it as a therapy for my own PTSD issues, and this is another way for me to support my brothers and sisters in the military.”
