Standing Rock from web photo?

So inspired to paint this because the found the horse so both challenging and inviting to paint. Plus of course the political background is always in the background.  Oil painting on linin 18×24.  Still need to sign and varnish it.  I am pleased with it.

Final Standing Rock

19th Avenue San Francisco

From my photograph of 19th Avenue going through San Francisco.  It may not be done, but then this is referred to as artists discretion. Since I was conjured, born and raised in San Francisco I will need to get back there and take more pictures to paint. Have  a potential idea or two in my minds eye, which I could possibly attempt, but for now it is foggy.

This is oil on canvas 16×20. 20161029_170138

Plato’s Cave

Final new Platos CaveFox News of its time, this is my finished version of Plato’s Cave.

Okay this is my second Plato’s Cave. Those of you who know the analogy of Plato’s Cave could possibly help me figure out what they are forced to look at as captive audience. I decided with the Donky, Dollar, Elephant theme. We as captives are  forced to watch. Does anyone have any other ideas of what they as we are forced to watch, this is my view of our so called two parties?  I have conjured other options, but so far like this one.

As you can see, I included the one person who got away leaving the cave for the rest of the world, in the upper right.  Any comments or feedback will be appreciated.

Fyi: According to Plato…the person who got away goes out and sees the  world comes back and tells the others about the real world and they kill him or her? (which I find amusing since how did they kill someone when they where strapped to poles?)
