The Veteran. I was very glad to see this one picked because I had originally painted it as a tribute to the veterans after watching the series "Band of Brothers".
original by Peter Yesis
oil on canvas board
I really like the simple, quiet ways people in my neighborhood pay tribute to or honor the sacrifice that so many have made on our behalf. There is something so dignified and beautiful about this little flag attached to the home. Symbolically attached to the heart of the people in the home.
If this painting sells, I am going to match the amount as a donation to the (The Disabled American Veterans Charitable Service Trust)
Even if it doesn't sell I am going to donate anyway.
