This happened only a few blocks from my home.
This confrontation between a protester and the police was before things had calmed down in Brooklyn. The cops had recently driven a car through a group of protesters and tensions were high.
The Black Lives Matter protests deserve a monumental painting.
The protests deserve to be memorialized for the ages, something room-sized with screaming faces and shaking fists like The Raft of The Medusa by Delacroix. We have uniformed police standing off against unarmed civilians. Nightsticks against water bottles. Unmasked against masked. This is the first in a series.

I paint using gouache, watercolor, and pen and ink on Arches Hot Pressed 300 g/m2 Watercolor paper. The painting is 10" x 14" and is signed on the back.
