I’m new here, so, first, let me say that if this type of group is inappropriate or somehow distracts from the overall cause of this forum, tell me and I’ll delete it.
I have watched with interest the past few weeks the scandal surrounding the National Endowment for the Arts. This, as well as many other things, makes me wonder why creativity is generally associated with liberal mindsets. I don’t believe this to be true, but it seems that is the perception of many people.
In my adventures in the blogosphere over the past few years I have encountered many highly creative people who also happen to be strong Conservatives. I’ve run into painters, sculptors, writers of fiction and poetry, musicians, as well as many others.
I am an amateur painter, primarily oil and acrylic. I write a little too. The photo on this page is one of my paintings; I just finished it last night.
My objective in establishing this group is threefold:
1. To enrich my life with other peoples art.
2. To receive some objective feedback on my work.
3. To form a coalition of Conservative artists.
If you are an artist (again, any genre) please join this group and tell me your story. I’m also very interested in seeing/hearing your work.
