Patriotism, USA, and the US Flag – Stars and Stripes Forever and the appreciation of those who served before us, were things I wanted to convey in these folk art / Americana style original art watercolors created by me in 2007.

Someday, I hope to have a publisher who will offer prints of these and other patriotic cards along with the ocean waves paintings that were initially done in the same size. Also – here is one of the mermaids that I had forgotten about doing which was inspired by the lady and the horse flying over the sea (one of my pastel “paintings”) –
