Memorial is the day we honor the heroes who gave their lives protecting our beautiful country. Although it is a day often filled with barbecues, swimming and spending time with friends, we all should take a moment to remember those who bravely fought to allow us to live in such an amazing place. God Bless America!

Beautiful painting and the sentiment is right on. We all need to remember every day that we are living such beautiful lives because others are defending our right to do so.
We need to be cognizant of the suffering around us.

Perfectly lovely painting with great sentiments--I forwarded this on to my sister-in-law and her husband who has had two tours of duty in Iraq. Great work! (as usual...:))

This painting reminds me of Bay View, MI. It is an old Methodist "summer camp" with victorian "cottages" situated on the edge of Lake Michigan. These houses are only used 6 months out of the year and boarded up during the winter. The owners paint these grand dames beautiful colors and all have porches - some front & back and on July 4th, the flags are waving. I will be visiting this summer and I plan on snapping away with my camera... I will post them on my blog. This flag & porch you painted are very charming.
