I love these characters :D :D As always, without saying a word, this painting, like all of your paintings conveys so much emotion, and such a powerful narrative.

I really love the dudes in this painting, so much character, and so much conveyed through a simple mask or two, and a few suggestive tattoos!!!!

What is the meaning, if any, of the woman with the shirt over her head? And her necklace...? Thank you, -Sho

Thank you very much - it's actually depicting some kind of an old, wealthy man (probably a politician) on a quest of buying love, yet keeping his identity secret, the man on the right is probably a pimp, and the woman in the background is probably the old man's wife - unaware of her husband's deeds, and in the caricature posture of Christ.

Interesting. Anything on the upside down horseshoe his wife is wearing? Thanks, -Shoham

I'm thinking about using that as a kind of in-painting signature, actually, but I'm not that sure about that yet.
