In The Arena. “It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” – Teddy Roosevelt
Cowardice. My last painting for 2021 is this depiction from the movie The Patriot. This is what happened when chicken-hearted, Reverend Oliver, would not preach or oppose the overreach of King George and his redcoats. It took people getting hung in front of his church, and a teenage girl’s impassioned rebuke, to finally wake the dear reverend the heck up.
Rev. Oliver finally got it and he quit hiding behind his pulpit and said, ‘a shepherd must tend his flock, and at times, fight off the wolves’ and with that he joined the resistance. Which I’ve depicted here.
