With all the craziness of the new president I can’t help but create art with a message. I made two pieces, DAY OF THE LIVING SKULL and PORNO IS MORE BELIEVABLE THAN TRUMP. The “porno is more believable than trump” is protest piece. I am still in disbelief that our next president is going to be such a disrespectful, racist, misogynistic, bullying, lying con man! He has no compassion for others and only thinks in his own best interest. As serious of a situation this is I try to make light of it and created a hand cut stencil of the saying and painted in on Las Vegas Hooker cards. I only created a few of these because I want to focus more on being positive and don’t want to sink down to his childish name calling level.
That being said I created my second painting “DAY OF THE LIVING SKULL”. This painting is all about strength,power, positivity, love, overcoming fears, and living life. This is a scary time in our lives with trump becoming president. I try to stay positive in life and always find the best in situations. The silver lining to all of this turmoil is that it spawns creativity in the arts. I am going to continue to work hard and create beautiful art. From the darkest night comes a brighter day! I hope this unites us and we can overcome the mockery that trump has created. I will be the Diamond Lotus flower and blossom from the the mud. I will not allow the negativity, hate, and ugliness desrtoy my growth! It will only strengthen me and I will shine on.
DAY OF THE LIVING SKULL
The piece is painted with oil, acrylic, and spray paint on wood panel.
