Call Me Stormy

Finding righteous currents in turbulent times


For some, Barack Obama can be characterized as an empty chair. Utah artist Jon McNaughton sees the president differently, as a destructive force who has launched a myriad of changes that are tearing apart the fabric of the nation. McNaughton has now sought to encapsulate the damage in an epic painting he calls “Obamanation.”

“I chose to use an undisclosed studio so I could paint privately, without interruption, to focus on the task of embedding in a single painting all the mindless, radical and dangerous atrocities of the Obama administration,” McNaughton says. “It is my declaration that we have never had a president do more to harm our country than Barack Obama.”

McNaughton has issued a challenge to viewers: To find the 60 different symbols and metaphors he has woven into the painting representing negative actions by the Obama Administration. To get a zoomable view of the painting and see how you fare with the challenge, visit McNaughton’s website at H/T iOwntheWorld
