    This is an astounding work, Jerry. It could be interpreted several ways. I’m mighty impressed… Well done!

  • I really appreciate that, Miriam. Even though I have my own opinions, beliefs, etc., I wanted to leave this painting open to different interpretations, including the title.

    Very interesting work. Satire? I cant help but find this quite amusing and I hope that was the desired effect! Great work!

  • It should definitely by viewed as amusing, Bonnie… but also somewhat poignant.

    ‘The Great Hope’, but now?

  • Still the great hope, Sally. It’ll take longer than 2 years to clean up the mess left by the previous administration and I believe that Obama is on the right track. How quickly people forget what came before.

    A lot of evil people on there including obama. Some great men also though such as JFK

  • Well… We all have our own opinions but I’m pretty sure JFK would have approved of Obama

    Opinion yes…But Facts and truth are an entirely different thing. Not going to get political but Obama is destroying the constitution passing laws that lock our children up and take away our freedoms, hes turning this country into a police state and is pushing for martial law. JFK was murdered by factions of his own government; involving the CIA. I can’t just sit here and let people say obama is a good man especially if what I think is correct(your depicting him as jesus A.K.A to some the saviour) I think Jesus was just a good man.Obama says things, but does the opposite. Good picture brother, we’re on the same side no matter what.

  • I don’t debate politics any longer.. especially online. Too many people getting information from disreputable news outlets, (especially FOX News), and believing what they hear. It’s at the core of this countries division.
    But I’m glad you like my painting!

    Yes I agree FAUX news is disinformation in a nutshell, obviously ALL mainstream media channels have an agenda. I don’t believe any of it I do my research and make educated opinions based on that research, good day Jerry.
