Tuskegee Airmen in Walterboro

16" x 20" - Watercolor

This is my first watercolor painting in a couple of years.  It is inspired by the Tuskegee Airmen Monument located at the Lowcountry Regional Airport, Walterboro, SC.  Over 500 of the famed Tuskegee Airmen trained at Walterboro Army Air Field between April 1944 and October 1945 including individuals training as replacement pilots for the 332nd Fighter Squadron and the entire 447th Bombardment Group.

This painting will be featured at my upcoming exhibit at the Charleston County Library, Feb 1-28, in the Saul Alexander Gallery.  I am showing my watercolor series on black soldiers, Civil War through World War II, and some of my Uptown Charleston oil pieces.  I hope you get a chance to come by and and see it.
