Hello everybody! This is the third part in the story arc entitled “The Confidence Man Throws Down the Gauntlet”. This time we have some glowing figures backed against a wall. Obviously inspired by Goya’s “Third of May”, I wanted this painting to have the feel of an execution that was almost random. Casual. As if it’s all in a day’s work.
Yes, I realize it’s somewhat bleak, but this is a story. All stories (and all lives, for that matter) contain some level of violence. Unfortunately, that is the way of the world. I don’t want to glorify it. It just is, that’s all.
