A Simple Painting That Says it All...


It's called, "The Demise of America"

Many Americans today feel a sense of dismay and horror as we see our country in a downward spiral;

both economically, morally, and politically. President Obama's indifferent attitude and the continuous

list of scandals and bad policy are leading the country to ruin.

As an artist I am reminded of the old saying "Nero fiddled while Rome burned."

History believes that Nero himself may have set the great fire that burned a part of Rome during his leadership.

Afterwards, he blamed it on the Christians who suffered great persecution under his rule.

I see great similarities to what we are experiencing today.
Obama fiddled, while the people witnessed the demise of America.
