Along with a lot of others was asked to send words of encouragement to some students in Nebraska who are getting backlash for performing The Laramie Project tonight. I dug up this old interview for paintings I did back in 2010. Wow. Pictures speak louder than words. A project I did of hate crime victims depicted in famous works of art. It was cathartic for me. Standing up and doing the right thing is important.

Michael Musto has got to be one of my favorite people and portraits ever and today he sent me this wonderful note about how they interviewed him about his NY apartment and the art in it including his Olan!

It's official my two December commissions were delivered under the Christmas tree and well received! So now I would like to share these beautiful pop art commissions with my fans of my art. The portraits were commissioned for Tim Van Patten and his incredibly beautiful and loving daughters & they were an honor to create from start to finish. His kiss combined with his lovely daughters smile on the day we shot was all inspiring. Much love and thanks to his family this holiday season and to all from OLAN

WAR - Sidney Claude Howard

A writing about Sidney and my father from my brother Gary.

His sleep is sometimes restless
Walking at night in a cold sweat
He rarely talks about it
Nor of the horror's he's met

Somedays when it's quiet
His eyes reach back in time
And relive old high school days
Before it was Vietnam

He seldom plays his albums
now
For reasons that are clear
They bring him back to a
childhood
Of life and death and Bomy-Ba
Beer

He will never speak of
Gallantry
Or of his Silver Star
Unless of course you pry him
then he only goes so far

And when the mood is right
And the Beatles fill the air
He'll tell his tale...half jokingly
Of men in combat and Children in
depair

He speaks of Wh**es and Orphans
Their survival in a Hellish Lie
Humans clinging to a life
Where the only certainty is to die.

And yes... he had a buddy
And I have seen his face
Smiling he stands by sandbags
Forever
Frozen at some forgotten base.

To me he is the...true to life hero
Cause he's seen the worst that men
can do
And despite...the terror of it all
he chooses to live on and see his
story through.

Gary Montgomery
