Toe To Toe

A painting from a couple of years ago.

The title is from Maj. Kong's line in Dr Strangelove about "going toe to toe with the Rooskies".

People took it literally- as in 2 planes about to collide, when, in fact, the idea was that the two planes were hanging motionless, suspended in a kind of frozen moment. I thought that by depicting it in an obviously literal way would redirect attention away from the literal and into metaphor.

But what do I know?

It's 24 x 60 inches, painted very quickly- 3 hours or so. It's going to be Toby's.
