Patriots and Patrons, thank you for visiting.
"...let us come out into the light of day; let us enjoy the fresh air of liberty and Union; let us cherish those hopes which belong to us; let us devote ourselves to those great objects that are fit for our consideration and our action...Never did there devolve, on any generation of men, higher trusts than now devolve upon us for the preservation of the Constitution, and the harmony and peace for all who are destined to live under it."
- Senator Danial Webster 1850
Be DEFIANT and trust in Columbia, with all her faults, and in all her glory!

NEW... Our "Empire Collection!"
Rome remained great as long as she had enemies who forced her to unity, vision, and heroism.
This collection will feature Tony's art on the Roman Empire, but more than just paintings and drawings on Roman military equipment... these images are to inspire and invoke the power, ingenuity, vision, drive, courage and passion of the "Latin West" that we were born out of and benefit from till this day. There, in the struggle of Roman civilization against barbarism within and without, is our own struggle; through Rome's problems of biological and moral decadence signposts and red flags rise on our road today. STRENGTH THROUGH UNITY!
The Optio Gallic "G" Portrait print and Empire themed print now available!
NEW PRINT ADDED to our Empire Collection.
Tony's second "Empire" painting (in an upcoming collection of Roman military and inspirational art) featuring a portrait of a first line officer of a century... "The Optio."
An "Optio Legionis" was a position in the Roman army similar to that of an executive officer, acting as a deputy centurion. Chosen by his Centurion, his main function was as an "optio canturiae" - to assist in keeping troops in order by enforcing the orders of the Centurion, taking over command in battle should this need arise, and help with administrative duties.
The Optio's helmet would have been crested down the middle and flanked on each side by feathers. In this painting, the Optio is wearing an Imperial Gallic "G" helm, the Weisenau version.
The original painting is stunning and is painted in oil on canvas mounted to panel, 18" x 24." This painting is available for sale, go to the Original Art page for info and purchase.
