About Color of Courage
“I was inspired to make this painting shortly after the events of 9-11,” Greene said.
“My friend Wade Morris modeled for me. Wade was a proud marine years ago. The trunk and uniform once belonged to Tom Carpenter, a family member who was wounded in Vietnam. His trunk was sent back with “WIA” (wounded in action) stamped across it. Tom has since died after years of struggling with complications from his injuries. This painting is my tribute to Tom and to Wade, and to the many others who have served and are serving today.”
