In the eye of the beholder

I so enjoyed Paine Proffitt’s artwork in the December Lutheran Witness. What wonderful Christmas cards the art would make—or are they already?

Those weird paintings by Paine Proffitt are an insult to our heavenly Father and Son. Jesus looks like an Egyptian mummy. And Joseph and Mary need neck therapy.

Paine is a painful artist and should stop painting.
