I remember drawing as a kid. I had little doodles and drawings all over my notebooks. Some of the drawings were of elaborate war scenes. Some of the drawings were large and complex with hundreds of little figures.
Tanks. Helicopters. Submarines.
Explosions. Of course, explosions!
I’ve never forgotten these scenes.
For fun, I brought a couple back. Two Fuse burned tanks on photographs.
Renee thinks I am acting like a little boy again.
Was it those drawings that lead me to gunpowder art?
But, I paint for world peace.
So, I hope these groovy tanks help keep the peace.
I’m certain they will at your house.
With a fuse burned tank or two you can sleep easy at night. You’ll know you are groovy! You’ll know you are safe!
As a bonus, they look really cool.
New Army tanks cost $8.58 million each.
These pop art ones are a steal at only $150.
