Takin' Care of Business

Mixed media on paper

The setting of this piece is inspired by the Echo Mountain House, currently in ruins on a mountain north of Altadena, CA. A group of uniformed men from the city have marched up a trail to destroy the temple of an older and unacceptable religion. Two of the men take joy in burning a cross. Eventually, only the charred frame of the structure remains. In time, it decays to leave only the stone foundation.
