FURLOUGH DAY by Drew Brophy 16 x 20 Canvas Board 20x20 Series Painting Oct 1 2013 sFOR 20 CONSECUTIVE DAYS, I’M CREATING 20 ORIGINAL ART PIECES that reflect my thought process and where my ideas originate from.    TODAY IS DAY 15!

I’m painting from the heart, just having fun with it.  You might love ’em, you might hate ’em, but either way, I hope they invoke a feeling for you.

Today’s Painting is #15 of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled WHAT TO DO ON FURLOUGH DAY, 16″ x 20″ on Canvas Board, medium Uni Poscas Paint Pens.

I was so stoked about this weekend because we had made plans to camp at Joshua Tree National Park.  We’ve been planning this trip for months with friends Kat and Justin.

It never occurred to me that a government shutdown would affect me.  Until today, when I found out that all National Parks are CLOSED due to the shutdown!  This is trivial compared to some of the real problems that other people are dealing with in light of this shutdown.

But, I’ve come to realize that we are like two different societies; us and them.  The politicians are so disconnected from the public that they only argue for their own agendas and have no idea what this nation needs.  I vote that we get rid of all of them and start with real leaders!

Over the next few days (or weeks), I suspect that the beach will be more crowded now that government workers are furloughed!

Life is Good, Drew

This painting sold to Michele from San Clemente, who was enjoying her day off from work today thanks to the Government Shutdown!  (This painting theme was her idea, by the way.)
