It's time to visit Green Eagle's Art Corner, for news of Trends in American Art Today! I know how excited you culture vultures (or culture parrots, as the case may be) must be about this!
Despite that, Green Eagle is writing this post anyway. So there.
Well, we were all so depressed a couple of months ago, when that towering master of American art, Thomas Kincaid, drank himself to death or something. So it was with the greatest pleasure that Green Eagle discovered that God has already seen to our spiritual needs, and granted us a great American to take his place; a man by the name of Jon McNaughton, in whom the spirit of Kincaid can be said to be soaring again, if admittedly not to such exalted heights.
Let's start by looking at a couple of Mr. McNaughton's artistic offerings:
However, needless to say, this man's ability to crudely replicate the work of a tenth rate commercial artist would hardly have justified his having received the coveted recognition of a Green Eagle post in his honor; no, it is his more spiritual work that has made him a favorite of a certain segment of our political spectrum, and a target of Green Eagle's interests, and it is to that work that we now turn.
Let's start with this historically accurate painting, combining, well, a third of the "talent" of Kincaid with the scope of a David:
Now, how about this masterpiece?
And while we are on the subject, what ever has become of that Constitution that Jesus gave us?
So, let Green Eagle leave you with one final artistic masterpiece by McNaughton:
Well, some of you out there may be familiar with the famous "Rule in M'Naughton," the 1843 British court decision which has, ever since, defined mental incapacity as a legal defense. A mere coincidence that this guy's name is McNaughton? Green Eagle thinks not.
