This series of paintings was sparked off with the war on Iraq and madeprecisely one year after in 2004.  At the beginning I painted small works using water colour on paper.  With the problems compounding and Iraq escalating into further violence, chaos and disorder, I turned to larger work using oil on canvas.  This formed the core of a collection I entitled Kites and Shattered Dreams.
