Miguel, This painting is incredibly powerful. I recall the news story clearly and the photo images. It was shocking. Thank you for making a painting that honors the lives of these 2 young innocent Iranian men. May their lives never be forgotten. I hope the owner of the painting consciously remembers these 2 boys daily. I only wish i had seen this original work for sale sooner. Bravo.

Jim, thank you so much for your kind words on this work. It was a difficult painting to do, not technically but in the sense of the emotional baggage imagining what these teenagers had to go through.

Powerful painting.

what caused you to paint this painting?

The deaths are a result of ignorance, prejudice, and intolerance under the guise of religion, not faith. It is an expression of a lack of understanding of sexuality both "straight" and "gay". What really gauls me is the audacity for men to act like gods.

Hi Samantha, thank you for your comments. This painting is about the two teenager that were hanged in Iran because they were gay...

Me like. Death, not so much neisarly a penalty per say... at least in my opnion. some desreve to die,but then I guess that really depends.
