Quote:" The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more" John Adams
Well, we actually ended up celebrating our LIBERTY, our Freedom and our INDEPENDENCE on the 4th of July, not the 2nd, and I think this year I will celebrate with a giveaway.
The above painted paper-cutting is one that I finished some years back. It is my folk-art interpretation of a bit of American History . I sold the original many years ago. It is in the home of someone I am pleased to call a friend and who actually worked in the Reagan Administration.
However, I do have some beautiful prints of this piece and it is about time we had a give away, don't you think??? Size is 18x24, unframed and it is signed and numbered.
Okay, Let's do it.
Leave a comment, tell the world what you like or love about America. Anyone, anywhere, can enter.
On July 10th, one of the critters will pull a name out of a bonnet, or eat a cookie with your name on it ,or whatever other silly little game I can come up with.
In the meantime, fly your flag, eat corn on the cob and watermelon, kiss your gramma and Have a wonderful INDEPENDENCE DAY!
“A Republic, if you can keep it.” Benjamin Franklin
Fellow Americans, let's keep it!
