Sometimes life seems stranger than fiction. One of the things that continue to amaze me is the constant attack I get from those who hate the message I am portraying in my work. I get a constant barrage of emails, phone calls and shout outs from those who have targeted me for speaking in defense of Christian Conservative values. This never happened when I was content with only painting landscape paintings, but it sure feels right to take a stand for something in a world that increasingly expects the majority to conform to political correctness.
One of the things that I am endeavoring to do with my art now is to use it as a way to influence people to take a second look at our situation. To open their eyes to the deceit we have been fed by the media regarding our domestic and foreign policy which has led us down a dangerous road to insolvency and ruin.
The antagonists can yell and stomp their feet. I am getting more and more heckling on my Facebook, Twitter and all over the Internet. But at the same time it is comforting to hear the many words of encouragement and support from those who share my values and belief. Please pray for my family and me as we embark on the next fourteen months, which lead up to the presidential election. The new paintings I have planned are going to shake the nation.
