The Wall Comes Down! Bjorn Leaves on a Mission

Preparation Sketch of the Bauerfeinds taking son Bjorn to leave on his Mission.

As Communism disintigrated in the Soviet Block nations, the wall began to come down and East Germany and West Germany began the efforts of reuniting (two Koreas please take a page out of that notebook!).  Bjorn Bauerfeind's parents drove him past the open gates, (the guards no longer armed with machine guns) to the airport to fly to the United States to begin serving the mission for his Church in Oregon.  The sketch above is another version of Bjorn and his parents driving past the gate guards and the jubilant people celebrating the coming down of the wall. This is the sketch that will develop into a finished painting.

I'll have more about how I came to know Bjorn soon.
