A Painting a Day - Day 11

Today we remember those who lost their lives when terrorists thought they could cripple America with a horrific, monumental act of terror.  For all of the faults America may have, we are still a strong and resilient people. Like this majestic bird which is our symbol, we can still soar on strong wings, reaching new heights. One of the most important things about art is that it can express our deepest emotions.  Today, emotions are stirred by memory and it hurts to remember but it is good to see the perseverance in our hearts.

I am posting this eagle in honor of those who lost their lives and those who lost their loved ones too soon on that terrible day in 2001.  As this is the 11th day of my challenge, it is available for $11.  If you are interested in purchasing it, please email me at lauraparkhurstillustrator@gmail.com.  The first person to contact me will be able to buy it.

Thanks for coming to see my art today. I hope you can come by again tomorrow for my next creation.Please leave a comment if you are so inclined.
