New Oil Painting

Go our Separate Ways
5" x 8"
Oil on hardboard

I painted this earlier this month. I am still not getting much done, the body just doesn't want to cooperate.

I want to apologize for something. I re-read yesterday's post where I referred to President Messiah Obama by his initials - which just happens to be B.O. - (Hey, I did not name him - and yes, I giggle like a 10 year old about it.) But in re-reading what I wrote it sounded way too disrespectful, and for that I am sorry. I do not trust Obama, I did not vote for him. I actually started out as a supporter, until I read his book Dreams of My Father and that raised some serious questions for me. Then I began trying to find out more about him and his record - and well, time will tell. I hope I am wrong. But I don't see him as a friend to free-enterprise, Capitalism or Democracy in general. But at any rate, he is our President and deserves respect for that office. So I am sorry for sounding disrespectful, and I will try not to use his initials ever again. I hope I did not offend any of you too much, I am sorry if I did.

  1. Hey, the people who were offended probably didn't worry not one little bit about insulting President George W Bush or calling him "Dubya." I wouldn't worry about it.

  2. While it seems like a may agree with you politically - I was not an offended person - I really respect this post. People today seem to lack them a lot - it is one of my pet peeves. A favorite quote of mine: "Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use. -Emily Post"
    Bravo to you and your manners! :)
