God Bless America

God Bless America: 15 X 15 Mixed Media Fiber Art. Preparing this wall hanging to hang in an upcoming patriotic exhibit, my mind was going back to my childhood again. Growing up in post world war two, the 40's put a great emphasis on American symbols. Newsreels, war movies, books and magazines were all about the greatness of America and our victory over those who would destroy us or our allies. I can almost hear the song "God Bless America" sung by Kate Smith. Most families had sons who came home from the war and we were a thankful nation. So, this is my tribute to those times and the greatest generation. You can purchase this through The Polish Pottery Shoppe. This can be seen on Off The Wall Fridays
