The Strange Death of Europe

A little inspired by Conor Walton’s painting ‘Barbarians at the Gate’, Author Douglas Murray and recent riots in France, this image popped into my head of the downfall of the current empire of the West. It has the feel of the blind ignorant mob coming to tear down the existing hierarchy. Tearing things down can be good….like a a snake shedding its skin…. or bad like when the last animal of a species goes extinct.

While I was painting a nice gentleman stopped his van and offerred me a spare coat he had. Little did he know I had several pairs of longjohns on underneath my chic turtleneck so I declined. But he told me this was Breda’s house that I was painting.
