Abstract (EPIC)



The Art of War.


If you have boys you probably know the term “Airsoft,” as in Airsoft guns…the modern equivalent of the BB gun.

Anyway part of this summer’s activity for both of my sons has been staging EPIC Airsoft Wars.

The definition of an Airsoft War is getting a bunch of your best buds together and shooting each other with little plastic balls.

 (Proper eye protection required)

Part of the fun comes in creating elaborate Airsoft courses complete with barricades and fortresses to protect oneself against the barrage of flying plastic stingers.

Yesterday my youngest son staged another EPIC Airsoft War in our backyard and it was quite a sight to see.

Pallets, wheelbarrows and crates were all utilized to create the most EPIC warzone imaginable.

Then Kyle decided to make some shields out of cardboard.

He also decided to paint them.

And this was the result.

An EPIC abstract painting.

I’m tempted to frame the dang thing and put it up on Etsy.com for $3,000.

Somebody would buy it.

“EPIC”, an acrylic abstract painting by Kyle A. Stoll.

Good job for a kid that thinks he has no creative juice whatsoever.

EPIC indeed.
