TONY HEWES, San Clemente

I’m writing in response to Ms. Chené’s letter to the editor in the May 27 issue of the SC Times.

Although I support her effort to opine on what she deems to be “offensive” art, I’m wondering why she would choose to focus on one singular image she deems offensive rather than showing appreciation for Mr. Gonzalez’s art.

To bring religion into the picture is, for me, inappropriate and completely unnecessary. I, too, went to his website and found his art creative, entertaining, and perfect for San Clemente.  

I do not believe the majority of San Clemente residents would find his work offensive or inappropriate.
