A Few More Paintings on YouTube

I recently uploaded a couple of videos to, and this is a link to the first slideshow showing a small selection of paintings completed over the past few years—animals, flowers, people and places.  Enjoy!


Tonight I was looking through some old files on my computer and found this from 2006 to share with you:

Did You Know?

As you walk up the steps to the building which houses

the U. S. Supreme Court,
You can see, near the top of the building, a row of the world’s law-givers;
and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward
with a full frontal view …. it is Moses, and
he is holding the Ten Commandments.

Did You Know?
As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom,
its two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments engraved
on the lower portion of each door.

Did You Know?

There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings

and on many Monuments in Washington, D.C.

Did You Know?

James Madison, the fourth president, known as the

“Father of Our Constitution” made the following statement:

“We have staked the whole of all our political

institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government,
upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves,
to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves
according to the Ten Commandments of God.”

Did You Know?
Patrick Henry, that Patriot and Founding Father of your country, said:
“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often
that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians;
not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

Did You Know?
Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher,
whose salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777.

Did You Know?
Fifty-two of the 55 founders of the Constitution
were members of the established orthodox churches in the colonies?

Did You Know?
Thomas Jefferson worried that the Courts would overstep their
authority and, instead of interpreting the law, would
begin making law …. an oligarchy
effecting the rule of a few over the many.

Did You Know?
The very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, said:
“Americans should select and prefer Christians as their rulers.”

How, then, have we gotten to the point that
everything we have done for 220 years in this country
is now suddenly wrong and unconstitutional?

Let’s put it around the world, and let the world see and remember
what this great country was built on.

“One Nation, Under God…”

It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God.  Therefore, it is
very hard to understand why there is such an uproar about having the
Ten Commandments on display, or “In God We Trust” on our money,
or having God in our Pledge of Allegiance.
The other 14% have every right to speak for themselves,
but no right to gag the majority!!
