Man Saving Babies #1

October 2003- Oil on Canvas. 4' X 5' Property of Steve Tucker

This is the first panel of a triptych. The second panel was painted in 2005, and in it the figure was just watching the babies fall instead of trying to save them. This painting was suddenly ripped to pieces by the "artist" himself at an exhibition a few years ago. In the third panel, which has not yet been painted and possibly never will be, the figure is sitting on the ground with a bottle of wine while fallen babies pile up all around him.
