This painting, When Will It End, is by Joe Wardwell, who lays rock lyrics over 19th-century Hudson River School-like painted imagery. He lives and teaches near Boston, he studied at Boston University and the University of Washington, and he currently has an exhibition of perfectly exhausted paintings, As We Go Up We Go Down, at Prole Drift in the International District.
