Exhibition opens today at the Scarlet Macaw

The Scarlet Macaw Gallery in Sawyer, Michigan has an opening tonight and the artists were invited to submit one piece in any medium that reflects their views on the state of the nation.


Here is the piece that I submitted on inflation, it's a digital print done in Photoshop. Hyperinflation can be a very serious thing. My folks left Germany for the US in 1925 because of the hyperinflation. They told me that at the time everyone was paid daily as the next day the money would be worth half of what it was the day before. To buy a loaf of bread took a wheelbarrow full of money. The way our government is printing money IS a bit scary.
