The Burning of The Cross

Friday, June 17th, 2016

The Burning of The Cross—Ok for you folk and for my granddaughter Angela who fights for the rights of others, I am going to post “The Burning Cross”—perhaps for 15 year old Areinna, an African American girl who is scared about this election, for my Mexican Family I love so very much, for my Muslim friends and family, May, Mohammad, and my Muslim nephew, and for a Gay close relative I love with all my heart, I am posting this. I shed tears as I painted it . I will stand with you as long as I can stand!

“Large Package”

Monday, June 13th, 2016

So I will be painting what I call “Nuggets” Each will be numbered. Some will disgust some people but all will be about life’s situations I have encountered, These will Not be given away. As I was finishing the first, it was spoken for by a family member. His wish was granted.—I will dedicate this one to an ignorant large boy, named Clayton in the last years of my elementary school education. This went with me from then until now and I have heard this term many times. Each time this is how I picture the speaker–ol’Roff

I Am Thinking

Sunday, June 12th, 2016

I am seriously thinking of doing a different type of painting—painting my pet peeves but I am afraid many of my conservatives friends will find the paintings very unsatisfying—after all I am one darn nice old man! –We all have a different side to us that we want no one to see. The beloved Jimmie Sudduth proved that. Only selected people were allowed to see behind the wall of the front room. Thank God, I was one of the chosen. How i loved Jimmie and O.C.–Cebo to many.—-Yes, I probably will have one of those walls and perhaps I can satisfy that need inside of me to truly express some of my “Raw Feelings”.–olRoff
