Description It is a common misconception that Germans were the first to utilize chemical warfare. This is far from the truth, as records from medieval China mention the use of mustard gas in 4th century BC.So here are some little soldiers painted in the style of old Chinese paintings... with modern-day gas masks.The script says 'Time Flies' and the red stamp acts as the artist signature/seal (it contains the Chinese characters for my name as well as a little dragonfly character).
BreeAnn Veenstra, Grand Rapids, MI Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement BreeAnn Veenstra wants to make children dream and adults believe.
She grew up surrounded by the beautiful country of northern Michigan's lower peninsula. Wildlife and art were frequent companions both through her childhood activities and her father's own art business, E-Scape Art Glass (www.eaglass.com). She is continuously inspired by the natural world and its wildlife as well as the unending possibilities of combining these with the surreal and fantastical. Consequently, BreeAnn thoroughly enjoys including mythical or fantastical elements in her works when she can.
In addition to illustration, BreeAnn also enjoys writing, web design, and printmaking. She desperately wants to swim with dolphins and loves flying, even if it is only in her dreams.
