Painting Post

The third in the 'Hope' triptych is finally complete. 1 of 3 here, 2 of 3 here... All of them were painted from photographs taken by volunteers for the organization Doctors Without Borders in documenting the aftermath of the killing of 800,000 Tutsis by Hutu militia using clubs and machetes, with as many as 10,000 killed each day...
