My version of a VC painting and go to the group show at Taylor de Cordoba tomorrow

Karl Benjamen said of his VC series of paintings as his one and only set of political commentary paintings. This was tongue in cheek though and if you've ever seen any of them you'd know why. So this is my war commentary painting for the topsy turvy times we live in. Go Obama, down with oil and all that. Or maybe it's an anti-family feud cry out, purple family feuds. Anyhow it turned into an abstract gun battle complete with wound and blood and silver bullets with gleams and boss systemized under painting.
