Labor Day

Labor Day
8" x 8"  Oil on cradled panel
$195.00 + $10. s/h

Today is Labor Day.  I thought that was a great day to post a recent flag painting.  I have painted and posted this flag before.  It's the flag my dad received for his dad's service to our country.  My grandfather served in both WWI and WWII.  This flag has been passed down to our son.

Labor Day is a day that was originally intended to celebrate the American worker.  Now it seems more to represent the end of summer.  I thought it also a great day to post our flag as a few days ago the Republican National Convention ended and this week the Democratic Nation Convention begins.  And, no matter what party we belong to, or what candidate we support, we can all agree that we as people need to do something to increase jobs and help the American worker.  So, again, this painting seems great to post today.  Here's to celebrating the "American worker."  Happy Labor Day!

Hi Pam,
I really think this is a wonderful post! I love the painting of the flag and the family history behind it and your thoughts on Labor day and the political conventions are well stated.

Hilda, Thank you. I think you're right, the story helps the painting.
