“Hashtag” is a mixed media original work of art. It is 16×20″ on canvas. “Hashtag” was completed in mid-January 2020 and announced immediately following the 2020 State of the Union.
I’m a fan of the genre I would call ‘Portraits of American Life’. I love to see past and present subject matter of this genre in art, film and writing. This painting is intended as part of the genre. You could say this painting’s subject matter defines modern times.
“Hashtag” has the feel of the 1980’s and features a Heckler & Koch HK45 handgun surrounded by a vibrant power suit & tie — a trait of the President. The HK45 is significant as he is the 45th President of the United States, but is also one of two firearms Donald Trump is reported to own and carry personally.
