Ok, here's my opinion;
Great piece of art, though the message is in my opinion rather childish. If you would do some research, you'd see that the USA isn't after their friggin' oil..

Actually the painting doesn't only talk about oil. If you observed the image in front of you, you wouldn't have had to try to insult me. Then again, maybe you had to. I actually did that piece before 911. Oil wasn't the only thing on my mind, as much as a concern for this country to have President that is so entangled with Tobacco , oil, and pharmaceutal companies, as well as the NRA. Also the privatisation of everything from education, healthcare, and retirement is what I call a government official having too many conflicts of interest, ex. Church and State. The man would rather have me and everybody else invest there pensions in the stock market?! Don't trust the government, trust the business men. Yeah that sounds great! I'd rather make a bet at a racetrack. I did my research. How about you?
And OH, I was around to comprehend what Bush senior did as well with his buddy Rumsfeld. in 1986 I was a freshman in highschool. You just popped into this world.

For us, we need to steer away from the political commentaries, I've already gotten in trouble for it. But I would like to say that it is a really good piece of work. I like the traditional work, and the multimedia aspects. It would have been cool to put an envelope adressed to the director of homeland security in there too. Really nice work. My only crit is I wish I could see the true colors, theres is something about the skin tone that makes me think it isn't the color that you originally painted.

The skin is a result of a newspaper I literally painted on top of. I felt I was in a rush, so I cheated. The ink actually acted as a base tone. I've tried other mediums for this tone base method. It has a really cool effect, yet it is quite desaturated. Thanks for the comments.

You rule stepnw1f :buttrock:.
The only crit would be that the Bush looks more like an actor at the grammys than a politician.
