This acrylic is 24 x 24 and although it seems like a very scary painting and that can bother some people, my thought is an artist should paint what they feel and not really worry about whether it represents a disturbing image. The under painting is a very complex weave of browns, greys, blacks and naples yellow with a very gritty and urban feeling. I wanted the red to flood over top of the under painting creating a new layer of color and intensity. I think it works just the way I wanted it to. I think it sort of sums up my reaction to certain recent events.
