Old Glory


oil on canvas panel 6x6 inches
SOLD
There's always a flag flying at our house. As a result, we have lots of old flags. I even have one with 48 stars that belonged to my dad. Even folded, faded and old, to me it's a beautiful thing. In this painting I tried to capture the wear and the colors. The grommets adorn her like gold rings.
