Depot Dharma

My friends the threat to our Judeo-Christian values begins at our local garden center. I recently went looking for a Jesus or Mary garden statue to photograph for a new painting I had planned, but after browsing the garden centers of several department stores and home improvement centers found neither the Son of God nor the Blessed Mother. Instead I encountered numerous occultic gnomes and fairies, a couple of St. Francis statues and Buddha after Buddha after Buddha. Why fight it? Here's my latest painting...
