I have always respected veterans. The sacrifices that they have made to protect our country and provide relief to people all over the world in times of need are debts which we can never repay. I am deeply grateful for their service.

On this Veteran’s Day, I thank them.

In this year of increased world-wide conflict and domestic strife, the dedication to service above self is so much more profound. It is not clear that leaders in power have that kind of dedication, and it shows in the increasing lack of confidence that the American people have in their government. My hope is that in upcoming elections, we will gain new leaders who are more dedicated to service and will let go of other allegiances that challenge the betterment of the country.

Our flag is a symbol of the courage and dedication shown by the men and women who are serving, or have served previously, in our military.

For an artistic challenge, I am making a drawing every day in November. Each drawing will be placed for auction on here on my blog. These drawings will be fun images that will make nice gifts for the upcoming holidays. I have done “Drawing a Day” projects before, and they have been a lot of fun!

You can follow each day’s drawing by by subscribing to my my blog or by following my posts on FacebookInstagram and Twitter. Minimum bids will be low – you just might get a great artwork for a bargain!
