One Man Protest

11" x 14"

Acrylic on Canvas


The young man in the painting is vehemently opposed to shark hunting, and on a school trip to Victoria he espied a restaurant which he thought he recognized as being on a list of businesses which still continued to serve shark-fin soup. It took a remarkable amount of self-restraint to keep him from going in and expressing his feelings, so he contented himself with holding an impromptu vigil outside on the sidewalk. I'm sure in his mind he held the sign and loudly voiced his protest.
