The wall. Draining the swamp. Busloads of illegal voters. Twitterverse. Corporate profits. Conflicts of interest. Uncovering the 1040 form.

figures (Kelly Ann, Sessions, Bannon, Spicer, Price, Pruitt) have gotten x’s over their eyes - they’re out.
This is the tenth artwork in my “Dog Envy” political series. After the 2004 presidential election, I looked at my greyhound Gold Dust, lying on the floor
in the sun, and was envious of his obliviousness. That moment initiated a long series of
politically-inspired quilts. Gold Dust became my ‘everyman’, the average citizen, a common patriot.
