2010, 20inx16in Acrylic on Board

Based on the 1909 George Wesley Bellows masterpiece,
I was taken by the energy of the piece. The Ashcan
painters brilliantly composed scenes of brutal reality.
I wanted to capture some of this real life brutality in my
painting as well. This piece was created at a difficult time
in my life as I was dealing with many interior struggles.
The piece was created in the boxing match of the soul.
