• Brilliant Piece of Art Sells for Reasonable Amount of Money

    Do you remember Jon McNaughton, the artist who gave us the timeless masterpiece "One Nation Under God," alternately known (by me) as "Lord Jesus Christ Presenting Us with Our Holy Constitution"? Well, he's got a newer, even better piece of art that's–

    Hey, let's let the artist present this one…

    Wow! Looks amazing, right? Finally, we can dump that piece of junk "Mona Lisa" in the trash and hang up something with a little class in its place!

    How much would you think a brilliant piece of art like that goes for? A lot of money, right!

    Wrong!

    It goes for even more

    The asking price for an original painting trashing the Obama presidency will be about $300,000, conservative political painter Jon McNaughton tells BuzzFeed. The 44-year-old landscape artist has produced three works over the past two years depicting what he views as America’s abandonment of "constitutional principles." McNaughton’s already sold his latest painting to Fox News host Sean Hannity for an undisclosed sum, and he says he expects to sell the other two originals for at least six figures…

    According to McNaughton, it's the first painting Hannity has ever bought. On Wednesday, McNaugthon is making his Big Apple debut, coming to New York to be on Hannity's show. (Fox News did not respond to a request for comment.)

    Art industry insiders say that there are only about 100 living artists in the world who can command the kind of prices McNaughton is likely to get. "It's completely unheard of," one high-powered art dealer emails.

    And people say conservatives don't support the arts.
