This painting is a commission I did for a young military family.
He is in the Airforce and plans to be a career man, and has already served two times in the Middle East.
He and his wife have four beautiful children, and since he is transferred about every two years it just so happens that each child has been born in a different place .
They buy a landscape painting for the child where they are born so that when the child is grown and have their own place they will have an art collection started and it will be special to them because it is where they were born.
What a great idea, not only are they teaching the child art appreciation, but also starting their collection.
I wish you could all have met this family, they such good parents and the children are not only beautiful, they are so well behaved.
This was one of those really great experiences we sometimes have as artists.
I sincerely salute this young family and want to especially thank the young man for serving in our military service.
I hope you all join me in saluting and thanking our men and women in the military service.
