  1. Mr. Mayhew, I personally like your photography and as a shared owner of one of the fish shacks in Pine Island Sound, I have enjoyed your work showcasing one of my favorite places in the whole world.
    I am communicating with you over my dislike of your picture titled “Mr. President, Injecting Disinfectants is not a Cure for COVID-19”. You have every right to your opinions and every right to pursue your art in any way you choose. However, I think it is in poor taste.
    I don’t personally like our President, and obviously, you don’t either. However, I believe that he has done a great job as our President and I believe he is working very hard for the benefit of all Americans, even those like you who hate his being our President.
    Please continue with your fine art, as I believe you are destined to be one of America’s important artists. My only wish is that you keep your art separate from your political belief system. Thanks,

    1. Mr. Beane, thank you for your considered comment. I agree with most of what you say.

      However, I do not hate Mr. Trump or hate his being President, as you suggest. Judging me based on a single image is a bit of a stretch and unfair. Like you, I don’t like the man, but I have not the time or energy for hatred.

      I intended the still life image to be disturbing and evoke emotion. It is a metaphor for the consequences of Trump’s reckless and harmful statements. I was flabbergasted with his suggestion that injecting bleach may cure COVID-19. We need accurate and science-based statements only, not hypotheses, left unexplained.

      I felt compelled to comment. Out of place on my blog – sure! It is Mr. Trump’s statements and lack of communicating responsibly that are in poor taste.

      Again, thanks for taking the time to comment. I appreciate your kind words regarding my work.
