gun control


Title: HE WHO HAS THE GUN CONTROLS
Size: 22 x 30
Medium: Mixed Media
Sometimes paintings that are not pretty have the most emotional impact. Look closely and you will see a person being shot from behind. This painting is from a workshop demonstration. The objective was to take a news item from a news magazine or newspaper that did not contain a photograph, and interpret your vision onto watercolor paper. The article I chose was written about an eleven year old who did not want to attend school for fear of guns and gangs. On the bottom right corner is the phrase, "He who has the gun controls"
