Oil on board.Two children are injured one cries and looks at his damaged hands. Behind them a bomb explodes and two men in dark suites watch .

Who tilts the scales?

In the last of the paintings I reflect on the men, women, children and animals who live with abusive bullies . Subject to remorseless physical and mental abuse, silently enduring the fear, constant undermining and mind games, day in and day out, sadly we know this can end in tragedy for the victim .

Below, a child who lives in fear. The deterioration of physical & mental health from extreme distress . And one of Aesops Fables , a warning, that kindness won’t change a serpent .
