Stand Tall for the Third Amendment!

Detail, two untitled oils on canvas, 16×20 (JMN 2018).

“I will defend my Second Amendment right to use my musket to defend my Third Amendment right to never, ever allow a British soldier to live in my house.”

(Mark Russell, 1932-2023)

(Robert D. McFadden, “Mark Russell, Piano-Playing Political Satirist, Dies at 90,” New York Times, 3-30-23)

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.

      Thank you, OA. I photo’d 2 paintings from several years ago that aren’t very successful (whatever that means!), printed the jpegs, and scissored and pasted them into something I hoped would support Mark Russell’s comment. I guess it’s cut and paste in the analog world!

  2. This post seems to be trying too hard to be clever and edgy. Can we please focus on more important issues than outdated amendments and obscure quotes from deceased satirists? What is the actual point of these untitled oils on canvas?

    Mark Russell was so brilliant. His perspective is needed now more than ever it seems.
