New Beginnings Oil on canvas 24"x12"

Finished the painting and tonight will submit it to the show and see what happens from there. I named it New Beginnings because I started it during the presidential inauguration, a new age in America was beginning. The sunrise, a new beginning on a new day, and the tattered old flag kind of spoke to me about where we are now as Americans. Is this the new dawn of a bright future, or is it a beginning of the end? Only time will tell. It was fun working in oils again and with as much paint is left on the palette i think i will do one or two small paintings in oil in the next day or two. Right now though.. i have a date with a washing machine.
