Intercontinental Ballistic Missile Tag

ICBM painting 14 of 50 by Drew Brophy Nov 8 2015FOR 50 DAYS, I’M CREATING 50 PAINT STUDIES that reflect 50 things that fascinate me.  

You might love ’em, you might hate ’em, but either way, I hope they invoke a feeling for you.

This painting is #14 of 50 in the #50Paintings series.


SIZE:  8″x 10″ paint pen on Fredrix Pro Series Archival Canvas Board.

Last night we saw the craziest thing in the night sky.  It was a huge area lit up bright white and blue with a green tail – at first we thought it was a comet, but it was moving too slow.  Then I found out it was an ICBM, aka an INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC MISSILE.  It was launched from a submarine right off shore in Southern California.  (Here’s a video a local took of it at the beach here in town)

An ICBM is a missile that can be sent to other continents, across the world.  Last night was a test.  The military even diverted commercial air flights to run these tests.  Gotta wonder, WHY? It’s kinda scary, seeing this from my front yard.

This painting study is available for purchase SOLD to Eric Hildwein, another artist from Florida, who I’ve known for a long time.  He bought this as his son Dylan’s first ever original painting – which is cool, because his son isn’t born yet.  He’ll be here in April 2016!

One of my goals with this series is to make original art affordable for those who want it.   If interested in adding tomorrow’s to your collection, please email or text or call 949-678-8133 asap!

I hope you enjoy this series.  Thanks for reading!
