"Rambo Santa"
oil on canvas
$700.
What could say “Christmas” more clearly than a small child showing missing front teeth, sporting a bright red santa jacket trimmed in white “faux” fur topped with a black plastic ammo belt and armed with a toy gun? My model dressed himself as depicted here blending the pagan rites of Hollywood with the generous spirit of Santa Claus, truly (though entirely inadvertently) capturing the spirit of modern Christmas. Christmas, that time of excitement and let’s be honest, angst, too. While we all love Silent Night and the story of the lowing cows and the arrival of the Christ Child, for most of us our holiday reality is closer to Santa Claus rubbing elbows with Rambo. Whatever your holiday celebration looks like . . . may there be peace, love, and perhaps some laughter.
