Politics: The Art of Michael D’Antuono

Art is not made to decorate rooms. It is an offensive weapon in the defense against the enemy. Pablo Picasso, 1943-03-24

I saw the ‘Diversity’ poster by Michael D’Antuono in a tweet from Malcolm
Nance.

 

Diversity Makes America Great

 

Michael D’Antuono’s art is reminiscent of Norman Rockwell.

 

“”Freedom from Fear” by Norman Rockwell 1943

But these are different times:

Cold as Ice

Like Rockwell, D’Antuono uses his art to make a powerful case for American Democracy and the Rule of Law.

 

“”Freedom of Worship” by Norman Rockwell 1943
Patriots
The Talk
Make America Hate Again
If We Can’t Trust the President we need to Impeach

I post these images because I agree with them. I do not know the artist and do not profit from sales of his work.

I do not own these images.

Scammed!

Every so often I read a post that brings a smile from my soul.

roughwighting

scammed iPhone, grandchildrenI’m home making dinner and my cell phone rings.

I check the number and groan. Phone scammers now send calls using the same area code and first three digits of a nearby town. In my case, each call says “Groton.”

No one in Groton is on my address list.

I ignore the call and sauté the onions before the phone rings again. And three minutes later, again.

Just about ready to throw the phone in the drawer and lock it up, I notice that the “scammer” has left a voice mail message. Weird. Scammers never leave a “calling card,” so to speak.

Brother Love cover Jinx on phoneJinx on rotary phone next to “Brother Love – a Crossroad” on my Kindle.

I was so impulsive in deciding to quickly “bookize” the serial that I didn’t plan ahead for a launch or promotions.  So I begin by repeating my thanks to Sally G. Cronin for announcing Brother Love – a Crossroad at her blog earlier this week.

My weekend post included a give away of an e-book of the novella.  I numbered your comments and used a random number generator to select the winner.

… And the winner is….. Dyanna Wyndesong! 

Dyanna publishes Ravenhawks Magazine.  Be sure to click over and say hello.

Meanwhile, I’ve just done a podcast.  The amazing Annette Rochelle Aben hosted me for a fun chat.  We discussed “Brother Love” and several other things.  I even brought her into my writing process by playing my three things writing exercise…
