You know I have noticed that a lot of people seem to view this painting as a political statement in favor of the war in Iraq. They make assumptions about my stance on that. In fact this painting is just purely patriotic and in support of our armed forces. It is in now way a commentary on whether we should or shouldn't be fighting in Iraq. I am always in support of our men and women in the armed forces even if I am not always in agreement with actions taken by our government. Thank you!

I am very surprised that more people hadn't complimented your patriotism. I am very patriotic, and in the same turn I like butterflies and faeries and all that. The mesh of these two subjects is very nice. I like the whole lookout and everything, and how she solutes, and even her fishnet stockings! I love this picture, I really do ^_^

Behind her hip. This was based on a photo my husband took of me. The thumb was not visible in the photo either.
