Red Tails Escorting the B17s
In 2011, the Pritzker Military Library commissioned a painting to commemorate the story of the Tuskegee Airmen of World War II to be hung in the Holt Oral History Room.
Two years later, the library unveiled my now historic watercolor painting, “Red Tails Escorting the B17s”. The subject for this painting did not come easily. In order to make sure the historical issues were correct, I used the resources at the Pritzker Military Library, viewed countless training films from the Tuskegee Airmen achieves, researched the internet and watched films of the bombing of the Ploesti, Poland refineries, the blitz of Berlin, and many more.
