America’s Pride

Some months ago, I unveiled a painting entitled The Light of Freedom, which portrayed a dramatic American flag unfurled over the New York City skyline. Old Glory symbolizes, for me, the indoitable American spirit, the passion for freedom, the pride and the abundant blessings that have characterized our nation. The response to the painting was gratifying. Not only was the piece extremely popular as a symbol of patriotism, but a special charitable edition helped raise $1.5 milion for relief effrts sponsored by The Salvation Army. I was also intrigued to discover that many colectors asked if I could create a reiterpretation of this painting celebrating other American cities. The idea stuck with me, and gave way to America’s Pride.

This first piece in my new Flags Over America Collection, America’s Pride, features the same dramatic sky and waving flag seen in my previous painting, while below I pay tribute to the most patriotic of all American cities – our nation’s capitol. In my painting, I have depicted the Washington, D.C. skylie with lights glittring as evening approaches. The Capitol Building is illuminated, as is the  Washington Monument, while cherry blossoms catch the last rays of sunlight in the foreground. There is no doubt that for all citizens of the United States, our nation’s capitol truly is America’s Pride.
