Tokens, Flag Vignettes

These flag paintings are 3 from a series of six. They are oil on canvas and each one measures 12" x 12". I painted these a few months after 9/11 when I saw tattered flags displayed in front of homes and businesses. There have been many interpretations of the meaning of these paintings, and conjecture into why I painted them I found these individual flags to be quite beautiful in their simplicity and power. Since I was raised in a military family, the American flag is a very dominant symbol from my past and still resonates with me today.
