About this Painting

A tenth generation American, the artist's political views show up in his USA flags with some form of tear, break or discoloration, stress from foes foreign and domestic, and a political process too much broken.  Sometimes the flag is repaired; sometimes not.  The current work is typical.  The star-field is stiched in repair to the white stripe below.  Stripes show a general roughness, and the top red strip is frayed.  Conclusion: America is a work in process.  We need to be ever viligent to ensure our values are reflected in our representation and our governing process.  From time to time our star spangled banner may need cleaning, repair and restoration.
