This original painting is part of my Artist Way mini-series, “5 Things I’m Not Allowed To Do.” I know better not to do it, but I like fighting with people when they act like idiots. It’s always better to paint out my feelings instead of actually resorting to physical or emotional anger.
The dynamics of angry energy is channeled into fighters in a boxing ring, with the strong opponent on the left creaming the other into unrecognizable shapes. The shadows (much darker in person) build the dramatic mood of the situation, with the fighter emerging into the light and dissolving into the dark.
