I was raised a pacifist with a knee jerk dislike of guns. Still, I prefer ethical hunting to factory farming and think it unlikely that the majority of humans will become vegetarians any time soon. So I don’t have a problem with guns for hunting game/animals. The gun above, however, was designed for hunting people.
As I researched the AK47 and created the preliminary sketches and then the painting, I began to admire the beauty and power of the thing. When my 7-year-old first saw the finished painting, he crooned, “Mommy, it’s so beautiful.”
