The Threat. Mixed Media on Board. This work takes it's cue from a number of sources. I always liked how Charles Burchfield (and even James Thurber) personafied buildings. In this case it has a number of levels though. It could be different aproach to creating image related to Russia on the verge of invading the Ukraine or the 2021 United States Capitol Attack. Or it could refer to the painting Fight Between a Tiger and a Buffalo from 1908 by Henri Rousseau in The Cleveland Museum of Art. On another level it can also refer to what can happen in everyday life, loss of job, loss of savings, catastrophic doctor bills, etc., etc. It is something that happers in a persons lifetime at least once on some level...in their personal life, city, or country, etc, etc, etc.
