This piece depicts the Texas State Flag along with icons of Texas Bluebonnets, Longhorn Cattle and the beautiful red sunsets, all that make Texans proud.
I painted these poppies in remembrance of those who have sacrificed for our freedoms.
“This is reminiscing of all the sunsets I enjoyed while living at the foot of the Sandia Mountain. Looking West from there the Rio Grande Valley rises to the West Mesa on which five extinct volcanos reside. Every evening as the sunset builds behind them, they appear as sentinels guarding heavens treasured gold.”
