Piece description from the artist
This painting is of a foolish man who tried to ruin my life by painting me as a crazy person who did not deserve to have custody of my daughter. This painting was created while I was attending ASU, and thrown in the dumpster by the ASU senior professor staff. A grad student pulled it out of the trash, and was able to find me through another grad student who worked at a cafe, that was exhibiting my paintings, including a similar painting of Mr. Ethics. After some bartering, I was able to obtain Mr. Ethics again.
