Obama Wants Your Money

I originally posted this last year but thought it was appropriate to repost considering President Obama will ask for a $1.2 Trillion increase in the debt ceiling.

 In 2008 when he was campaigning he complained that the national debt was $9 Trillion. He said this was unsustainable and unpatriotic of President Bush to put this country in debt by borrowing from the Chinese government and pushing this debt on to our children and grandchildren.

What about now? Is it o.k. for Obama? This President has added $6 Trillion to our debt in three years and wants more. STOP SPENDING OUR MONEY DAMNIT !

Taliban Joe

The other day our Vice President said "The Taliban is not our enemy per se...". It makes me wonder who it is that's been shooting at our guys in Afganistan. If the Taliban isn't our enemy, then are they our friends? With friends like that who needs enemies? I think it's the Obama administration trying to make nice again with those who want us dead. Maybe then they can declare victory and the war on terrorism would be over. YAY! Victory! Let's pull our troops out and go home. Hmmm... I wonder.

Capitola View From The Cliff - acrylic painting

Capitola is a little town just south of Santa Cruz, California and I think it's one of those cute places you just don't see very often. Cliff Drive follows along the cliffs through the town of Santa Cruz and continues through
Capitola suburbs to the beach and old town that sits on the Monteray Bay.
There are some good spots to surf along the Cliff Drive so I'm very familiar with the area and the reason I keep coming back.

DiCaprio digital painting

I put the Leo D. sketch in my Corel Painter and went at it in a pop, modern,
contemporary art style.(?) In other words, I don't know what I did, just throwing color around to see what happens. I like this, it's new and different.

DiCaprio - sketch

Sketching around with Leonardo. This guy has one of those faces that already looks like a cartoon so drawing him is fun. I'll finish this as a digital painting over the next few days.
