Rockets Red Glare

9″ x 12″ Mixed media on paper

Just in time for Independence Day, “Rockets Red Glare” is my attempt at a patriotic piece. This piece is mostly alcohol ink and some watercolor on a base of soft gel gloss medium. The soft and flowy feel is contrasted with the bold bright colors of the ink.  

For the record, I am not exactly feeling so proud of America at the moment. I don’t want to get political here, but I am grateful to have been born here and I have respect for all the good Americans, past and present, that fought and died for our freedoms and rights. I just hope that one day ALL Americans are treated equally and fairly and that immigrants, (like our ancestors) are welcomed with open arms.
