"Happy Holidays”! I’m sorry, no I’m not. “Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah”! Many artists are looked at as pushing the envelope, being agents for rebellion and change. Most don’t like “you can’t do that”, that’s not possible”, and “no”. Sometimes artists stand up and say things that are against the popular politically correct cultural language of the day.
In that day when morals, marriage, God and country are all on the chopping block for the fever over social tolerance, it is time to say, “Christmas is Christmas”. It has been and believe me, should be an accepted norm without question in a country that was founded on Judeo Christian ethics.
This day, “Christmas” is as you probably know the celebration of running to the local store for anything that would satisfy the lovely little ones or create good will toward one in which we have a relationship. I’m sorry but this is not the reason for the day. Over 2,000 years ago in a small part of the world, in a predetermined predicted village was born the Son of God. His reason was to come to earth live a sinless life and offer Himself as a living sacrifice for a broken relationship that demanded reconciliation.
You may choose to believe this or not, but what you should understand is that is what our forefathers our ancestors and our government established as a holiday, “Christmas”.
Should you choose to participate with the correct understanding or not paintings are an exceptional choice for the giving of gifts. Better still is the finding of an artist that you appreciate and the introduction with a gift certificate or some arrangement that the receiver of your gift would for themselves be given the opportunity to select a painting of their choosing. People need to connect with paintings more than they need wall decorators.
Oh, “Merry Christmas”!"
“Not sure of the day created that we celebrate in a special way?
Let me tell you it is Christmas not just some holiday!
Yes, we give gifts and give thanks and honor family and friends.
But Christmas is important because He gave us life without end.
Give beautiful paintings that are real and not some kind of ploy,
Because paintings breathe life each day and give such joy!”
“The countdown for Christmas has begun and Hanukkah is here. May you and yours have a wonderful experience as you celebrate the truth.”
"Find my paintings, or may my paint-tings find you!"
