"L.A. Riots"

original painting (partial 1 & 2)

20" x 24"
acrylic & collage on  illustration board

After the L.A. riots, I painted a piece that epitomized the scene: the sheer anger and violence unleashed upon the local neighborhoods of South Central L.A. 
I was angry about the cause of it all, but I was more appalled by the results.
My one lasting impression was seeing the sky on fire with so much smoke.

media? what are you painting on?
how can we steal your secrets if you don't put them on your blog?!
