Depicting The Invisible: A Portrait Series of Veterans Suffering From PTSD by artist Susan J. Barron was inspired by the fact that 22 Veterans commit suicide every day in our country. Her series of 14 hauntingly beautiful six-foot by six-foot, mixed media works on canvas are created through a combination of photographic imagery, paint and text including each Veteran’s story.
