Wouaouh Beth, I'm always speechless in front of your huge talent...This one is poignant and terrific. You rock my friend!(I've been missing you and your wonderful artwork.)
Excellent message (except maybe doe the gun!!!) and wonderful art, my friend. So glad to have you back!
Wow. I think they're all mad as hell and they're not going to take it any more...now that they've got themselves a spokesperson who talks softly and carries a gun. Yikes. The scraped-down sort of texture you've given the picture emphasizes the overall down-trodden mood. That the girls are clones of each other underlines the attitude of their oppressor(s) that such worthless beings are unworthy of care and are ultimately replaceable. One can always read so much into your work!
