My Heart Broke When I Stopped Painting So I Could Sell My Right Wing Jesus (It’s Fixed Now!)

When I was 17 the first painting I sold was to Mrs. David Rockefeller at my first art show. This was in New York City at the Frisch Gallery. Next came a show in Switzerland at the Chante Pierre Gallery in Aubonne (near Geneva) and a show in London soon after. Then I quit painting because there was more money and power and ego in selling Jesus. I was an idiot! I started painting again about 10 years ago. Here's some of the new work.(Tulips, Wind & Sun Oil on canvas 24 x 24, 2013) When I … [Read more...]

The Slow Motion Lynching of President Barack Obama

They say “he’s not reaching out enough” or “he’s too cold.” It’s the equivalent of assuming that the black man being beaten by a couple of thug cops must have "done something."I am a white privileged well off sixty-one-year-old former Republican religious right wing activist who changed his mind about religion and politics long ago.  The New York Times profiled my change of heart saying that to my fo … [Read more...]

Here’s A Reason Why I Bother Writing– “Frank, I need the rawness. I need the dirt. I need the profanity.”

I got this email from someone I'll call "Wounded Recovering Evangelical", who gave me permission to post it here but says "That being said, please remove all the identifiers. When I say we’re from rural parts, I mean that. Everybody knows everybody. Our people are bible thumping (and twisting), Obama hating, tea party rednecks, bitter and broken and full of indoctrinated blame... "So here's the letter emailed from somewhere in the South: "My name is ---, 43 years old, husband, father. I was … [Read more...]

White, “Christian” and Treasonous: Who Will They Kill?

Their "enemy" is everyone in America not like them.They think the world is ending and/or that the government is out to get them. That … [Read more...]
