The Colors of Freedom
This series of three paintings was created to commemorate and celebrate three virtues instrumental in molding the character of the United States of America. The cowboy is used in these works because of the iconic stature he holds as bearer of these traditional values. Individually, the works are titled “Work”, “Honor” and “Reverence”.
Work is about the right and freedom the individual has to participate in a free and open market. Anyone can own a piece of property to raise crops or cattle or own tools to make and sell a product or provide a service. Work is a good and noble way to provide for one’s self and family.
Honor pays respect to those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in keeping America secure and free, and also gives special thanks to the men and women who serve in the armed forces.
Reverence gives thanks and recognition to God who by His grace and kindness has overseen and blessed America with a great land and system of personal and national freedom and prosperity.

The paintings were created using traditional oils on stretched linen canvas. Each work measures 57” high and 68” wide. The exhibition of all three is 22 feet wide. The hardwood antiqued and gilded frames are handcrafted by the artist. Below each painting is a quote by a prominent American leader. Additionally, the artist created each painting with a patriotic American color as the main focus (red, white and blue).
