What the 4th of July means to them
This painting was inspired by something I saw on the 4th July. I saw a recently immigrated Muslim family come to watch the fireworks and display more exuberance than even the Americans. --> There was one woman there who had on a headscarf with the American flag and I couldn't help but notice the dedication in these people, they live in a nation that has not so subtly declare them to be the enemy, they are in the land full of people who feel emboldened to say or do what they want to them. Yet even with all of the negativity, hate, prejudice that has reappeared in the US they still show dedication and patriotism, we are truly fortunate to have people still loyal to us in the face of unrelenting abuse.
