... to ensure our protection
If you look close... there are two generations for service members subtly added to the background. An image of Gene's Dad, while in Vietnam, is kneeling by the flagpole and an image of Gene and the HHB 1-5 FA soldiers is in the grass.
This piece might actually get a home other than on top of my piano. If chosen, if will part of the GuardiCare http://www.guardiacare.org/ Art Auction and Gala. I am keeping my fingers crossed for both possibilities. It would be so rewarding to have someone like something I have painted enough to want to buy it. On the other hand, I really like this piece and I would like to keep it. It is a win-win situation.
