I painted this field study out at the Planes Of Fame Air Museum last Saturday. They were having a special event, and so I was surrounded by veterans and war bird lovers, one of whom helped unjam my tripod with his pliers. Each time I go there I look at the planes and think about the brave and honorable men who flew in them, what they had to do, what they accomplished for our country and others, and whether they got home in one piece. We owe so much to our veterans and active duty military.

Next Tuesday marks the two year anniversary of my blog. To celebrate, I'm planning to honor our military by donating 100% of sales of my next few paintings to The Wounded Warrior Project, a non-profit dedicated to meeting the needs of severely injured service men and women coming home since 9/11.

  1. Karen, great painting and wonderful cause. We have the wounded veterans come to Beaufort, SC where I live once a year and it is called "The Lt. Dan" week-end. And Lt. Dan(Gary Senise) comes every year and brings his band.

  2. This is a great series, Karen, and a great project. We have wounded warriors here at the hospitals in San Antonio. My son-in-law works with a project at Sea World call All Can Ski. The vets ski with missing arms and legs. It is pretty awesome.
