Boys Stoning Insects
Boys Stoning Insects
Oil on Canvas
16" X 16"

A very early figurative subject, somewhat reminiscent of Jacob Lawrence, an early influence. As I remember I got the idea from a poem I read. I liked the idea as a metaphor about human violence in general; how it is instinctive and practiced at an early age. It was the first painting of this kind which, when shown in a local gallery, seemed to attract interest and good reviews.
