OH BEAUTIFUL FOR SPACIOUS SKIES .......

OH BEAUTIFUL
            FOR SPACIOUS SKIES ....

GOD BLESS AMERICA  LAND THAT I LOVE....

OH SAY CAN YOU SEE BY THE DAWN'S EARLY LIGHT ...........


Flag display
Schminck Memorial Museum
Lakeview, Oregon




Unfinished painting
Monica Lawson
"Family Treasures"

The little boy in the painting is holding the same flag that's
hanging on the wall.
Family traditions and treasures are handed down
from generation
to generation.

Sometimes, treasures such as this unfinished painting
get damaged .....
a hole got punched into this painting after the picture was taken.
It's in the upper left corner
near the flag.
It's being repaired by a
professional art conservator.

Sometimes our flag .......
our nation
 gets torn,
burnt,
attacked


The flag is only a symbol of our great nation.
Holes can be repaired in our lives,
treasures,
relationships.
We can be spiritually and physically "repaired."

And the glue and new backing that binds those repairs
in my painting .......
our
lives
our country
will hold us together
even stronger.

Happy Fourth of July!
