SATAN’S PLAYGROUND

Bernie “Doc” Duff: Satan's Playground

Artist’s Note: This is the first painting that I attempted to depict a Vietnam scene and is based upon a photo that was taken by Larry Burroughs. It shows a medic bringing in a Dustoff Chopper to pick up dead and wounded soldiers. It almost appears that the medic is also summoning God for help, which is part of what appealed to me in this scene. As a medic, I often felt that way and even more now, as I ask for His help in addressing these old memories.
