those are good.

do you think the hand holding the photograph needs some kind of context? or will a good title set that up?

I like your capture and use of light (from a serious, but amateur photographer’s point of view). Very nice !

But no happy little streams or trees ? :-)

Wow! Really nice art! And it’s not that pretentious “Post-modern anti-art” garbage that’s all the rage these days.

That’s my self portrait. Lots of artists do them, I guess. That was mine.

There are actually a few good conservative artists out there. Here is a link to another site that has several liberty minded artists. They are young, talented and they love their country. Liberatchik

Nice sampling of some good work. My wife and I are nearing retirement age and we are working on developing new oil, mixed medai and water color skills to go with wood carving and other interests from our youth.

Nice stuff! One of my kids is a Libertarian Artist trying to break into the Lib-Art world. Applying for Grad School now and working as an Artist (gallery representing him just closed) and working in retail to pay the bills and save for Grad School.

I’m going to send him your blog-link.

It can be a lot of fun going out to art festivals in the summer. Meet a lot of nice people and eat some good food.

Really beautiful stuff. I love the street scene ... sometimes ordinary subjects make such extraordinary compositions in the hands of a skilled artist ... such as yourself!

Well... I’ve been asked by one of my galleries to have a show with my beach paintings this spring. So at this time, they aren’t for sale. Generally the prices range from around $300 and up. $1,700 or more for some of the larger Civil War pieces. Thanks for your interest!
