Painting – Gaza’s Last Stand

This painting is from an International Herald Tribune photo of a sad Palestinian vegetable seller in Gaza. I painted the man and his vegetable stand first, and then added the desolated wasteland in the background. What does the painting mean? I’m going to leave that open to interpretation. This is perhaps my most “political” painting to date.

Painted on an 8×10 canvas panel with Liquitex Basics acrylic paint that took three hours to complete.
