Burn baby, burn

Today I set fire to a number of older pieces that I have been carrying around for a few years.  Most of the pieces date from 1993-1999. 
There might be more, but today's fire consumed around 15 pieces.  I recently moved, and so I am going through 5 portfolios worth of work that I've been carrying around for  17+ years now. This picture is from 1994,  during the RIT years, a project where we had to paint 3 images in monochromatic color schemes.   I chose 3 violent images.  Two were war images (Vietnam- one is a woman having shrapnel removed from her hand) and the one pictured above is of R. Budd Dwyer. 

crazy days.
