I painted this last night and posted a copy in the Digital Art forum. I thought I would share it with the larger WC community by also posting it here.

Thanks for your comments, all. I created this piece as a tribute and as way to channel the many emotions I was feeling as the initial news unfolded. I later sent a few copies to some of my co-workers. To my surprise, they forwarded it on to a number of others, on and off-site. People stopped by to tell how much the painting effected them. By the end of the day, I was told that many copies had been printed and were posted in numerous places in the facility. Today, Sept 14, was the day designated to "display the colors". One of my co-workers created small stickers from the image and many people wore them, along with their red, white & blue. I was amazed that something that I created, resonated with so many others. It was one of the proudest, most humbling moments that I can remember.

God bless America.

Digistyle I keep coming back and looking at this and showing it to my friends. It's like she feels betrayed for allowing those to enter this country so freely. It really is a great graphic
