Bingo was painted over several years, the painting is made up of multiple layers of paint and resin created depth and separation of background and subject.

Based on Vietnam war slang each quadrant represents meaning for the word used, from the top left; Leg (Infantry unit), Hog or Hog 60 (the M60 machine gun), Lego (slightly contemptuous term used by airborne-qualified troops when they are talking about regular infantry), Bingo (a slang word used by fighter jet pilots when running low on fuel).
