Epitaph

Epitaph
Medium: Chalks, pencils, pixel dust. This piece started out as a bit of doodling and the thought: what if the cracks on an old, decaying wall formed a picture? And then the old saying "If walls could talk" got mixed in, and then a childhood memory of a visit to a zoo badly in need of refurbishment probably added to the mix. Then a cheetah entered the picture, probably because cheetahs are my favorite wild cat. The idea of caging such a swift, fierce creature is pretty horrific. In the end, while I really didn't set out to make a statement with this picture, I guess I kind of did.

This painting is for sale as a print on my site at Fine Art America: fineartamerica.com/featured/epitaph-j-l-meadows.html
