Spiritile 251: AMERICAN HEROES“Never was so much owed, by so many to so few” Winston Churchill From @houstonllew :This piece is a somewhat modern yet timeless enameled interpretation of Childe Hassam’s 1917 painting “Avenue in the Rain.” The original painting is in the permanent art collection of the White House and has graced the Oval Office over several recent presidencies. It is one of my favorite patriotic pieces ever created.The piece embraces the strength of national unity. The water hints at ominous challenges, while American Heroes stand guard over those who are forced to shelter down under cover from the metaphorical storm. The flags proudly protect us & bring us back together to overcome the obstacles thrown in our path by elements beyond our control.And what better story to put with it than that of a man who recognized & was eternally grateful for the sacrifices frontline Americans made for humanity? I doubt either Mr. Hassam or Mr. Churchill would mind me spinning my own creative style by smashing them together, a bit out of context, and into something new. Ingenuity is, after all, the American way!Thank you all for your continued support and may God Bless America! -Houston THIS ITEM SHIPS DIRECTLY FROM HOUSTON LLEW IN ATLANTA PLEASE ALLOW 7-10 BUSINESS DAYS!Each American Heroes 251 Spiritile purchased from now through Labor Day 2020 will have a special 'thank you' message from Houston sealed on the reverse side. **Only those American Heroes 251 purchased during this time period will have the message.To honor those who continue to serve and to further their legacy, we are donating a portion of the proceeds from each American Heroes Spiritile sold from now until Labor Day, to the Gary Sinise Foundation.
