Nature Versus Nurture

60x30; oil on canvas; 2011. The age old argument about how behavior is shaped, here portrayed by two allegorical figures. Nature is presented as Moonbeam McSwine, a Li'L Abner character of horrific sloth and odor. Nurture represents the warm, smothering embrace of civilization. Both figures are tethered.
