Japan II - Night shock

Painting 2 of responding to the disasters in Japan. In this one I was just thinking about night, shock, cracks, the nuclear plants, fragments and severity. And just now reports that the Shinmoedake volcano has resumed activity spewing ash and rock...Enough! Japan just can't catch a break. This is awful : (

These are wonderful.

I have just gone on record to offer a show for Japan.

Not as structured...

This is wonderful also in a strong statement of what the darkest feelings must be- really wonderful expressive work in these 2 pieces.

Very successful painting! It looks fractured, like Japan must be.
