Patriot's Flight 4 by rachaelm5 Patriot's Flight 4 by rachaelm5
I'm an American. Please permit me a moment of blatant, though belated, patriotism. :flagus: :w00t!: :flagus:

I'd intended to have this little picture ready for July 4th, but when I arrived at my sister's house for the annual shishkebob barbecue, I realized I'd forgotten my white colored pencil. Oops. Can't do a flag-themed thing without the white.

So! Belated happy Independence Day to my American friends. I hope you survived the week with all your fingers, toes, and faces intact, and that you remember exactly why we have and celebrate Independence
Day.

To the patriot soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines of past, present, and future: I salute you in my small way. I would not be who or what or where I am without everything that you have done to earn and retain my freedom.

:salute:


Accomplished with watercolor, acrylic, and Prismacolor pencil.


Original art: sold.

Matted prints available, shipping included in US:
5x7 for $10
8x10 for $15

This is lovely. I'm a proud American too and I happen to love birds so red white and blue eagles are awesome. Nice job.

It is at that! I don't think I've ever seen it done that way either.
