“Why not just paint a mustache on everything?”

Why Not T-Shirt, JMN.

Why Not T-Shirt, JMN.

I read this in the Times or Guardian last year: When Gutzon Borglum was promoting his idea of carving faces into Mount Rushmore (1927-1941), many people were scandalized and incredulous. What a silly, useless notion! What a lack of respect for nature! Such pretension, such hubris! The project wasn’t popular with a substantial segment of the public.

The quote on my T-shirt is from an anonymous person who sounded off on the matter in a newspaper article of the time. It has a zaniness I find appealing.

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day. I like to read and memorize poetry.
