'O'er the Land of the Free'
Acrylic on Canvas by Sherie Sloane (c) 2009
I've been pondering on what to paint for the upcoming Fourth of July. I wanted to make it simple, yet still portrays the spirit of patriotism.
Both my husband and I came from military families. Celebrating Independence Day is not just a day of merry-making for us, but a time to remember both our dads who served their countries.
I've been playing the Star Spangled Banner in my mind and the line "O'er the land of the free..." hits a chord in my heart.
May this painting remind all of us to cherish the freedom we enjoy today and remember those who fought for it.
Dad, Thank You.
