As many of you know, for several years now I have been stalked by two women. They run social media accounts accusing me of awful things. They fake photoshopped pictures of me, create fake blogs they claim I wrote, even splice together interviews and appearances I’ve done in order to make it seem like I have said things I have not.
Their favorite thing to do is take every art piece I create and claim I somehow “copied” it. They scour the internet, sometimes for days or even months, trying to find anything that vaguely resembles an image I’ve painted.
This time they are creating throw away Insta accounts and attacking my recent icon paintings. Icons aren’t “copied.” There are certain images and popular portrayals of Christ, Mary and the Saints. In most icon painting traditions, a Saint for example is always shown holding a particular item or doing a particular thing because it’s part of that Saints’ story.
That having been said, I have never “copied” any of my art work, least of all my icons, which I have made my own, in my own style.
My recent “Christ blessing” icon is in the same style as all the Christ Blessing icons painted throughout history. I’m not writing this post to convince my stalkers, they are literally insane and all I can do is pray for them but I’m writing it because as our country becomes more and more polarized artists,writers, and any creators who are Christian or politically centrist or right wing will find themselves battling such attacks.
This is par for the course for the radical Left. Don’t let it sway you, don’t tuck your tail and run. Stand up for what’s right. Stand up for truth and love.
Our country is in a maturing phase where we are learning to use social media, right now many of us are acting like little children and recent studies have found that social media can create or worsen mental illness. If you or someone you know are being stalked, please don’t take it lightly.
