When I first heard the theme of "weapons" I thought of all the sweet weapons in Dungeons & Dragons, or that ultimate weapon you seek in video games...and then I thought of it. My favorite board game of all time. CLUE.
And it's not just the board game--it's the movie, the books, and all the different incarnations of the game. It's a huge love of mine and so that is what I chose to pay tribute to in my painting.

Depending on what book you read or movie, sometimes the characters are a bit inconsistent. Mr. White changes quite a bit, sometimes a maid or cook, and Mr. Greens personality and occupation vary from piece to piece. I depicted them how I envision them, with their weapon of choice.
