Freedom-Don't Take It For Granted Watercolor

I am so excited!!! I just won my first award!
This won 3rd place at the Watercolor Horizons
show at the Ellen Noel Museum in Odessa. 
The inspiration for the painting:
Joe and I were at a job related training and the instructor
opened the session with a short documentary about
Frances Scott Key and "The Star Spangled Banner".
I was moved to the very core of my being at the 
sacrifices made by our founding fathers.
"O, say does that star spangled banner yet wave?
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave."
or BECAUSE of the brave.
The flag is displayed on the porch
with the rocking chairs.
Comforting and comfortable.
FREEDOM-Don't Take It For Granted!
