Troubles on Top of Troubles

11" x 14", oil on wood panel, 2014, private collection

It must have been extremely frustrating to go to Europe to fight an enemy you had no personal quarrel with and find yourself obstructed at almost every turn before you even get to fight. Here a truck is stuck in the mud, the heavy munitions temporarily removed to lighten the vehicle.

This is in the "Calamity" section of my WWI painting project, but at least it's a calamity of a non-lethal variety.
