Not pretty, I know – wasn’t meant to be. Even the greatest painter who ever lived with all the colors available, couldn’t make this a pretty subject. It’s just a grim reminder of one of the thousands of atrocities that’s taken place in our world.

Museo de La Inquicision (Museum of the Spanish Inquisition) in Lima, Peru

Yarka St. Petersburg paint on Arches 140# cold press.

“To me, every work of art gives the viewer a glimpse of the spirit that resides in the heart of the artist that created it.”

Thank you for viewing my work. I consider each visitor a very important part of my creative journey.

    Very nicely done Marsha! There is a definite eerie vibe exuding from this piece. Great work!

  • If you think this is eerie, you should go through the museum. These are all someone’s loved one stacked here…..& this was just a tip of the iceberg. Thanks for your comments.

    Isn’t this the typical scenario of what happens when man disagrees with another for his way of life being different or wanting something he has. Love it!

  • It sure is, Russell……well said. Glad you like it.
