Shake the Nation

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.


  1. Jon, I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I admire you for expressing what needs to be said for the Godless and loveless world we live in today. Morality and values of who God intends us to be has been lost in the society and I am glad you have the courage to speak out with your God given talent.

    God bless you and keep up the awesome work you do.

  2. It will be a privilege to pray for you and your family. Your paintings are so thought provoking and beautiful at the same time. I look forward to the unveiling of your future paintings.

  3. Jon, Pleas keep doing your paintings. They are so true and meaningful as well as beautiful. I hope some day to have some of them hanging in my house. You and your family will be in my prayers. This country and her people need to be shaken up before it is to late.

  4. We will be praying for you as you embark on this journey. You are an inspiration to all of us God fearing, Christian people. God bless you!

  5. Just remember Jon, there are many more that stand with you, than against you, if you could but only see the legions of support in this life, and in the spirit world many appreciate your story telling with your art. The more they shoot at you, just means your hitting bulls-eyes on their targets. Keep going... the nay Sayers are always there, and always wrong. God Bless you and your family.

  6. Keep up the good work! I can't wait to see the new paintings! I will pray for you and your family

  7. You sir are doing fantastic work! Don't let them get you down.

    Long live Christ!
