Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

I painted this in 2012 after years of reading story after story of the crimes that "too big to fail" banks committed causing the economic collapse of 2008. This is a "plein air" painting which means I set up my easel right across the street of this Chase bank in my city and painted it like it had caught fire. The police questioned me on the spot. Three weeks later Homeland Security was knocking on the door to my home. The question they kept asking me was "Do you hate these banks?" I can honestly say yes.
