Close Encounter's Of The Artistic Mind

Christopher Tyler's avatar Christopher Tyler

I am an Iraq combat veteran and I sufferer from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) like over 350,000+ other Military Veterans today. You may look at this Art and see some space ships, a farm and a mother ship beaming up a cow...What you may not see is the Soldier below the waterfall, kneeling and flying the American flag proudly. Feeling the water beat down on him, the weight of the world on his shoulders,feeling lost,frustrated,isolated,alienated from society: Now feeling lost and like an alien from this world which he fought for.
