Here I am, the newest member of the Blogosphere! I am going to try to update this blog regularly with subjects that are on my mind that relate to my paintings, my beliefs, and what I think people should know about my work. As I have stated before, the three things I am the most passionate about, besides my family are religion, art, and politics. These so happen to be the most likely to start an argument in most polite conversations, but I'm not exactly one to restrain myself from speaking the truth... or painting the truth. One of the great lessons I have learned in life is that I should never worry about what people think as long as I am true to my principles and trust in the Lord. Yes, I am a very religious person (as you can see from my paintings) so expect to get a good dose of McNaughtonisms!
As you read my blog in the future you will come to know me better. If any one ever has questions about what I believe, all they have to do is go to my website (http://www.mcnaughtonart.com/), look at the art and read some of the captions explaining the pictures. I am an open book. I am a good natured and amiable type of fellow, not quick to get angry or start an argument. Perhaps this would be a surprise to those who have studied my newest works, but I have strong feelings about what is happening in this country. I will fight to the grave to wave the flag for God and my country.
Occasionally I will answer reader's questions and try to minimize my writing errors. (I am a painter...not a professional writer!) For me, the passion is in the creation. The result is for everyone else.
