Independence Day!

Originally this graphic was posted in 2013, but the words still speak truth today just as they did back in 1776. May God bless America!

American Icons – Echos of the Past

GU372“An American Icon”       Mark Schutter ©2010        Watercolor Pencils

The American Bison is a true original and its image takes us back to a seldom remembered past when they roamed freely over the land prior to their decimation almost to extinction at the hands of man.  I tried to capture the simple beauty, strength and majesty of this truly magnificent animal.  This was previously painted a few years ago but the 4th of July got me to thinking about our great country so thought I would post it here.  Enjoy! ~M
