The Russians Are Coming

Artwork Story
Coming back from the airport in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, I would see this small house that seemed (especially with the RV, birdbath, and boat) to say "House." I decided to paint it in watercolor. I liked it without irony. Soldiers come in from the sky on parachutes, look around, then realize nothing is happening. A policeman comes and takes them away. The house returns to normal. I guess I used irony anyway. -Anders Shafer
