Imagine you walk into a museum and see these weapons on display. Seems absurd to think that these innocuous items can cost you your life,but this is our reality. The killers don’t even need a badge as they watch their prey in the neighborhood. What happens when you’re respected loosely because you’re suspected of selling loosies? As they fear for their lives with your back to them, they stand their ground and take aim. Which weapon will you choose to defend yourself? “Weapon of Choice” 20”x16” acrylic on canvas board #art #painting #acrylic #tzdoesit
