"This painting is in memory of Job Corp students who were killed in a train wreck in 1998. In the futurist Manifesto of 1910, F. T. Marinetti's rallying cry was 'We maintain that the splendors of the world have been enriched by a new beauty: the beauty of speed.'' In contest, Doug's painting suggest that the powers of nature are supreme."
