Happy Independence Day! I'm so proud to be an American. I hope that you and your family are enjoying this holiday. As I said in the last post, I will be demonstrating the art of oil painting at the RS Hanna Gallery in Fredericksburg during First Friday Art Walk~ I would love to see you there. I'll start at 5:00.
Today I want to share a brief sketch of a woman napping in a park on holiday, to get you ready for the long weekend. The model, Khayt, has posed for our Friday group a couple of times and seems to epitomize the relaxed vacationer. Too bad she wasn't in red, white and blue, but she does have an apple! And I believe the volume at her hand is Alexis de Tocqueville's "Democracy in America," in which the author opines about the greatness of our young country: "...I have nowhere seen women occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, --to the superiority of their women." A wise man!
Happy Independence Day, God bless you this holiday and God bless America.
