Saluting America

American Figure 20x26 oil on canvas
This was a live model, I don't know why she had a cowboy hat on lol Perhaps the end of the photo shoot so it was just silly moments.

This is an oldie from 2003. A painting I sent to my dear friend Leanne's husband Mark who was serving time in Iraq. It's kind of a silly painting of course, but I just wanted to send him and his barracks companions a little cheer in their rough environment. Thank goodness he is home now and will not be going back overseas after all, he will be serving from the US which is even better.

Anyway, this is Erika's way of saying I am remembering September 11, 2001 when the world as we knew it changed forever. I keep in my meditation those we lost and those who personally lost someone. I also keep in my thoughts those who are currently serving and those who have served. May we all see brighter days in our horizon really soon. For now I wish you all peace.


  1. Yes he was quite pleased and I'm pleased he didn't have to go back again too! xo

  2. Too much fun!!! Good to hear your friend did not have to go back. My son-in-law had do two tours in Iraq...bad times for everyone.

  3. :)
    Yes I'm glad he didn't have to go for the 3rd time! Thanks Theresa!
