“Unusual for me to make a painting that is so much about a specific moment in time. BUT, when it keeps me up too many nights in a row, it must be addressed. This Swamp must be drained.”

Spot on summation of the Trump administration….chaotic, no unifiying vision of the world, history and no understanding of how to lead or use the wealth/power of America for friendship, collaboration with other governments to move our world and finally the U.S. to a better place for the good of the earth and all mankind.
Coming from a place of cruelty and cheap immorality, they only know how to tear down and destroy. Trump insults our represenatives in Congress and perverts the constitution for his own devious and crooked ends. In collusion with a supine Senate the group has succeeded far beyond what anyone thought was possible to shred our great institutions, the House of Representatives/ the Judiciary, the State Dept, Dept of Justice, etc. This painting says it all in those greedy, sly, clueless, faces. And Trump loves the mix where he is most at home, using money, power, threat to achieve his wicked ends. Great period piece!
