"We’ve taught them how to cry, how to whine, and how to get their way. We’ve praised them and patted them till they believe no one is as good as them. We’ve given them everything they wanted.
What we forgot was to give them what they needed.
All of this has led to a massive breakdown of truth, value, family, caring and sacrifice for worth. It has led to massive crime and gang build up, cocaine in high schools and junior high, total disrespect for any adult, a tidal wave of meism, self gratification, incomparable greed, and a throwaway society.
The teaching of art has been replaced by playtime with paints, the coddling of every individual, the praise of the ungifted and the practice of the worthless. It’s no wonder pillows are more important than paintings.
Criticism and critiquing for improvement cause an uproar because it introduces and goes against ones self-esteem. Pushing someone to improve and do better is frown upon because they may feel bad or be looked at by someone else.
We can’t even wake up and smell the roses because the thorns have replaced the petals. Is anyone listening? Well, take the phones out of your ears, stop texting and playing your favorite perverted video all while you are driving and think about it. Everybody wants more for less. You know what? We are really getting it!"
“Doesn’t take much to break things down and apart
Simple consistent falsities will truly break the heart
Allowing the truth to decay and be thrown out
Leads to unrealistic thinking and permeates doubt
Choices false and selfish show others the wrong way
And when the hammer drops many have to pay!”
“Great paintings find a way to our heart and remind us of the importance of truth. Find one that keeps your heat pointed in the right direction. Have a wonderful week!”
"Find my paintings, or may my paint-tings find you!"
