Shock and awe

This is Number 7 in my Runway series. I'm still working on it. If I can resolve a few things, I think it will turn out well.

Like the others it is 72"x48" and is acrylic on canvas. I shot it at this angle to avoid the full glare of the flash.

I like her sequined dress, which was designed by Alexander Wang. If you want to see the photo I'm using as a guide, go to my September 11 post.

In the background I have Baghdad burning during the shock- and-awe campaign undertaken to soften up resistance to our invasion, which came on March 20, 2003
