Oil on 5x7 hardboard.
This is my latest submission to Karin Jurick's Different Strokes From Different Folks. It's a fun challenge...she puts up a different photo each Wed. night. Artists from all over submit their renditions of it. The variety and creativity is both amazing and instructive.
Many years ago, my father earned 50 cents a day wearing footwear that looked exactly like this.
He worked that same job for over fifty years. The title of this piece refers to what the USA was built upon (in my opinion)...hard work, honesty, and a belief in God. I think we need a swift return to those roots.
