If you aren't familiar with the art of Jon McNaughton, let me introduce you. His specialty is art which makes people think. I found the following critique on his blog. In my opinion, it's excellent. As an art teacher, I always taught my students that the highest purpose of a work of art was communication. The student is to examine and evaluate the message which the artist wishes to communicate. We must all be thinking viewers, not passive, allowing ourselves to be deceived.

sorry to say it but I doubt if America is going to wake up in time to save us from this monster in the white house now.

Hi Debonair. I just went through your blog. Love your header, beautiful picture. Sir, you are a Snark Genius. Please, accept my sincerest compliments.

As for America waking up in time, I don't know. I'm doing everything that I can over on Twitter and around the blogosphere to spread information. Sometimes, I feel like an Old Testament prophet. Mine is just to tell the truth. Win, lose or draw, one day I shall stand before my Lord, and I don't want to have to be ashamed when He askes me what I did with His precious gift of this country.

If you're on Twitter you can find me @Frances_D. God bless.
