Friday Finds 5.28.10

We would like to take a brief moment to say thank you to all the men and women, past and present, who do what they do on a daily basis to protect our way of life. You probably don't hear it enough but thank you, we appreciate it. Without further adue welcome to this week's stars and stripes inspired patriotic Friday Finds segment. Happy Memorial day weekend!


There's something about stars and stripes on a wood medium that just looks proper. We really like Naomi's Petit Angel Girl piece. To see a few more examples of Naomi's mixed media work please check out her Etsy shop.

It doesn't get much more patriotic than the Star Spangled Banner! When we came across Cindy's Star Spangled Banner original watercolor painting we knew we had to feature it. While we're on the subject of the Star Spangled Banner, a slightly lesser known fact: while our national anthem is the first verse of Francis Scott Key's poem, the poem is actually four verses long and the motto "In God We Trust" was taken from the fourth verse of the poem :) To see more of Cindy's great work please visit her Etsy shop.

Wow, check out wendellfiock's mixed medium stars and stripes tribute. Wendell's 'American Flag' is awesome! Be sure to check out the closeup photos for this piece, each state is represented in the squares that make up the flag. Check out wendellfiock's shop to see some more great pastel, ink, and mixed medium work.
