Paint Brushes...not guns...creation::destruction

Paintbrush(Labor Series)   watercolor   8.5 x 14
Last evening we watched a program dealing with gun control that featured a cream-cheesy family from Utah doing target practice with their young children....all the while claiming that gun-owners are misunderstood.  The final shot of their family was at the dinner table eating venison that had been procured by the hunter-father.  Quite frankly, I have to question parents who choose target-practice as a shared activity.  I have to wonder just how much violence could be stopped if these same parents immersed their children in acts of creation, rather than destruction....music, theatre, visual arts, reading.  Creativity saves lives.

You can't talk peace and have a gun......Francis Magalona
