Veteran’s Day provokes a sense of gratitude, and pride, in my heart.
I have seen the varying costs to some families and their family members who are serving our America in the military.
My experience has been that no matter what our political leaders may be doing, the veterans serve from the heart, for America, the people, their people.
After 9-11 our whole world changed, as did our own Nation. Some of the people serving allowed me access to their resources from their experience to paint a tribute from. It is a gentled tribute, they do not speak of the things that are not. Nor do they normally show photos of the things that haunt their own minds. You can view other paintings in the series on the page Military Tribute.
While painting these paintings, I prayed for them, seeking to understand the world they were now a part of and what were the changes happening in them.
