“On The Battleground” is an original abstract by Shelba King. She explains, “The minute I viewed this piece, I was captivated by the images that revealed themselves to me. I saw the soldier with his rifle on a ledge, and as my eyes moved down I saw another soldier squatting behind him. A bunker or tent then appeared to house another soldier. I can also see a medic helping a wounded soldier. I was in such awe, and I could barely believe my eyes. Chills came over me as I stepped back and viewed the picture as a whole.” King immediately knew that this piece was destined to serve a purpose bigger than herself, and she decided to partner with Creative Studios NC to host a fundraiser for Mission 22 (mission22.com), who’s parent company is Elder Heart (elderheart.org).
