Reflecting On Our Freedom Print
With this purpose in mind I have recently produced a signed and limited Edition Print, ”Reflecting On Our Freedom” the proceeds from the first 300 of the 1,000 were donated to the DeLand Florida National Guard Armory Family Support Services group and the area YMCA Children’s Support Services. The balance of the proceeds from these prints will go to these and other organizations with a portion going back to the Artist to defray costs and to go towards future printings.
I thank you in advance for your interest in my work and this painting in particular. It strikes a cord for most of us during this alarming time in our country.
