This Land is Your Land
This Land is Your Land“This is Your Land” is a transformed 2017 painting which was titled “America First?”. The leaders have been obscured and the silhouette of USA is visible. There is a line that remains from the addition of the photograph of a television screen that evokes the division in the United States today. I feel the images surrounding our capital and our country are the good spirits that are working for us in the background.This is a mixed media acrylic painting on canvas, 60” x 48”. $6,000.00
