Thomas Durham is a multi-talented artist who works in Washington, DC. His art has appeared in various museums and exhibits there.
More than two hundred of Durham's works can be found at his website by clicking here. Many of these are too "Americana" for my taste; but if you visit Tom's website and provide the name(s) of works you particularly like in a comment to this article, they will be considered closely for subsequent articles at OEN.
The three works that initially caught Rob Kall's eye (and mine) are Durham's three "Rats" Depictions of Congress.
If these seem exceptionally appropriate to you as depictions of the human life forms in Congress, request that they be set aside for future OEN articles and common use by OEN authors in pieces highly critical of that most august body. Post your request in a comment to this article, mentioning that you will look for future articles displaying one of the "Rat" depictions when you peruse OEN's front page for pieces to read.
Durham's three "rat-collages" are mixed-media computer works, using chalks and pastels on paper. At the artist's website, they are presently at the "Weekly Art Update":
Congress in Financial Debate
Congress Answering to Big Business

Stop the Music I Want to Get Off
The Political Life
War Series The Crucifixion
War Series War For Oil 2
And finally, one of the artist's self-portraits, which in fact is a sculptured head:
