I read on FB today that according to the Daily Mail, Stallone has spoken highly of  Trump and hinted that he would like to enter politics.

Daily Mail wrote that a source said Trump feels that this sort of A-list appointment will greatly benefit the arts industry. I could not agree more! Having the personas of  “Rocky” and ‘Rambo”, and someone as artistically insightful in motivating people like Sly Stallone in this position is a win for the art in America!

Stallone will motivate people and it doesn’t hurt to have is alter egos “Rocky” and ‘Rambo” helping – a win for the art in America!

Everyone can relate to Stallone’s stories of the underdog who becomes a champion of good, who fights for what he believes in! Pretty much the story of every artist and art institution. Even better, Sly is not just a literary and cinematic genius, he is a painter, and I’ve heard, with a kind heart!

Putting such globally know, charismatic person in charge of the NEA will punch up Art in America! NEA is an independent federal agency that funds, promotes, and strengthens the creative capacity of our communities by providing all Americans with diverse opportunities for arts participation.

As for me, I’m too emotional to be in politics. Heading or even being on a committee would cause me major anxiety so I have never accepted any request to be on a charity’s board. Like my paintings, I prefer to express my opinion (Paint) and leave it out there for others to decide how they feel about it.

Anyway, I hope President Trump and Sylvester Stallone move forward on this!
