Just sharing my art piece to celebrate the birth of our country. God Bless America is a mixed-media piece done with acrylics, recycled papers, ink/pencil and oil pastels. My summer is beginning to arrive and I find my schedule filling up with fun events. I always look forward to spring and summer here in Montana…we did have an incredibly long, long winter!! Enjoy your day everyone! Happy, safe traveling over the summer!
Started a few days ago on this piece. Never imagined that I would do this piece! It just came together when I saw a photo of the Statue of Liberty. I’ve always leaned toward being very patriotic. My father was a Marine in the Korean War and my husband spent two years along the Berlin Wall with the Army. Many, many friends of mine spent time in Vietnam. That was a tough time for our young people, sometimes I felt so lost, asking so many whys. The freedom that we enjoy should never be taken for granted and I am so proud of all those who have sacrificed for our freedom. God Bless America!
Happy Fourth of July!
