Amie (Kitty Cats and Airplanes) and I had a playdate this past weekend. After a little shopping, we got the acrylic paints and brushes out and set out to paint out hears out. The theme was July 4th. We painted side by side with the same colors but came up with completely different interpretations.
Nothing says 4th of July quite like the flag and the anthem. Stars and Stripes especially to me, since I was born on the other side of the big pond.
In my head the same verses were dancing as I painted
"’Tis the star-spangled banner, O! long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave."
I ended up adding the words to the painting itself
My hubby, who was in the Army when we met, absolutlely loves it
I also love Amie's take on the flag... What do you think ??
