Oh Lordy: it's time for an oil painting PSA as people on my feed are getting really politically polarized.
While I highly encourage you all to express your opinions, please try to challenge yourself to see the bigger picture. Willful ignorance and blindness to what other people are thinking and feeling will not solve the problems facing politics today.
It's time to open our eyes.
For those of you who are you weeding out your social circles and saying you will delete friends who post too many political opinions: I beg of you to stop trying to silence the outrage of others. We are no longer in a world where we only want to see pictures of your dinner, your puppy, or your ability to do yoga. Live in the now and deal with the drama of the day.
To those of you who are crying out in
frustration at every CNN report: I feel your rage but Summer is starting, and I challenge you to try to set down the paper and go see some beauty. Every moment needs not be filled with such Democratic despair. Turn off the news for a minute, go to a musuem, a dance party, the beach.
Some of you seem so lost in your American Angst. I want to hug you, pour you a drink and say "come on, let's go see the world before it catches on fire." Anyways, I'll step down from my studio soap box for now.... thanks to all of you for not deleting me yet. Hugs and ❤️ from this opinionated artist. 🎨#AnnikaConnor #political #oilpainting
