Description Words of support may be quite sincere by many who are now admitting that our nation has let down our children and the victims massacred at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. How have we failed them? Most of us have all known that the reckless use of inappropriate firearms in this country is the fault of our government representatives who accept money from the NRA. But, let us not forget that we have remained silent for too long, as well. I hope we will change and make this nation a safer place to live by enforcing gun laws and by providing health care access to the mentally ill. America has far more shootings and lethal acts of violence that any other nation in the world.

Matthew Schwartz (AKA Spadecaller) is a grateful survivor who conveys his convictions and serenity through visual art, poetry, and video.
He was trained in traditional oil techniques as a child and later attended The School of Visual Arts in New York City (1970-71). During the 70's up until the late 80's he exhibited acrylic and oils in New York, and presently resides on the west coast of Florida.
Since the advent of image editing software, he has turned more to creative digital hand painted images and photos striving to fuse these into an art form worthy of the distinction traditional painters deserve.
Spadecaller showcase his digital paintings, poetry, and other mixed media images by creating videos; these are available for viewing at: http://www.youtube.com/user/Thespadecaller.
