It seems to me, the most fiercely patriotic are those who live modestly, struggle financially, and have not quite achieved the American dream. I grew up in a small community where this was evident. On Memorial Day or Independence Day or just about any other time deemed appropriate every home displayed the American flag proudly! The town also mounted flags up and down our main street. I tried to capture this patriotic spirit in this painting. I hope you like it as much as I do! This is my new favorite!
