'Honoring Our Veterans' is a large original oil painting I just completed in time to be available by the 4th of July! This is a time we come together with family and friends at picnics and parades to celebrate our freedom and independence and honor our veterans. I'm thankful for all the veterans who have fought and made sacrifices for our country and freedom. This painting is inspired by the flags that are flown on Veterans Bridge in Chattanooga every year to honor our veterans. Twice a year, before Armed Forces Day and Veterans Day, a ceremonial event is held to install new flags along Veterans Bridge on the Tennessee River to celebrate 25 selected honorees. There are also 5 permanent flags to honor the Fallen 5 who were killed during a terrorist attack in Chattanooga on July 16, 2015.
