This is Trisha, whose portrait appeared earlier in the blog. People in my life end up in my paintings. This is why all painting is autobigraphical. No, I didn't take the April Fools' Day picture down. I decided to leave it. This is the same struggle I had when doing editorial cartoons in the first place. I guess it is part of my history, so I'll leave it.

I'm taking down the April Fools' Day picture after today. That's just not what I do anymore. I really struggled as an editorial cartoonist because it is such a negative art, and that is never who I was. I hardly give a thought to politics these days. Who is President now, anyway? Oh, well. Painting is where I'm at and where I intend to stay. Avauilable on etsy. Just click on My ETSY Store on right.

This is my April Fool's Day offering. Done back in the days when I was an editorial cartoonist with our towns' newpaper. This is about big government, not Bill Clinton. He just happened to be President at the time, but any politician will do. This is a parody of the famous drawing of Santa Claus by Thomas Nast. This is a profession that will get you into a lot of trouble, especially when the editor gives out your home phone number and people call you at all hours to read you the riot act. The editor got a kick out of it. So do I - now. But these days I'm not political at all. I simply think government causes more problems than they solve. We need statesman, not politicians. Done with acrylic, watercolor and colored pencil.
