Oil on 7x5 hardboard.
The hardboard was first coated with black gesso. This brings great life to color and brushwork from the very first strokes.
This painting was inspired by a song which someone sent me. It expresses concern about the direction this beloved country is heading. Special interest groups are trying to tear it to the ground. Understand that this is completely my humble opinion...(thought I'd better get it out there before they outlaw free speech).
Karen Hargett is a superb artist with a great love for this country and strong spiritual faith. At her request, I sent her the reference photo from which this painting was made. I admire the fine version she came up with! Check it out here.
Here's the song I referred to. Give it a listen.
