70 YEAR-OLD TEXAS ARTIST PAINTS VISION OF GREED & SHAME IN D.C.
Fairfield, Texas, United States, August 1, 2011 – 70 year-old Texas artist Wayne Vee has been painting pictures for 50 years. Politically, he self-identifies as an Independent. This “independence” is reflected in his newest piece unveiled today, “The Politics of Greed and Shame”. The 36” x 24” painting is Vee’s impression of Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner’s political vision surrounding the debt crisis in America; ensure rich people get richer at the expense of older Americans living on limited incomes. “The actions of John Boehner and the Republican Party are shameful and based on pure greed. Why can’t John Boehner and other Republicans have rich folks give a little more to make sure older, poorer Americans aren’t stuck with the bill?” states Vee.
Vee is one of the older Americans his painting embodies. Vee says he and his wife have to pay more, with less money, to live out their lives with some semblance of dignity and respect. Vee says “The Politics of Greed and Shame” painting is his way of expressing his disdain as an older American impacted by decisions emanating from John Boehner and the Republican Party. “I’m tired and embarrassed of politics as usual in Washington, D.C., and I’ll continue expressing my opinion through my art until things change.”
Vee’s painting can be viewed at Healthy Rhythm Community Art Gallery in Fairfield, Texas.
