Flags for the Fourth

Another glorious 4th of July

"Scouts and Flags"
Oil on canvas
10 x 8 inches

I wanted to post something in honor of the upcoming 4th of July holiday and came across two paintings that fit the bill. Amid the marching bands and floats in this 9th Avenue parade several years ago, a group of scouts hoisting the red, white and blue were marching proudly through the streets of New York.

After I found the scouts painting, I came across another piece featuring the flag, and thought, why not post this one as well. Loved painting the brickwork on this building's facade and the red geranium in the window played off of the red stripes in the flag nicely. Wishing you all a safe and happy 4th of July holiday!
