Symbol of Freedom – Giclee Print
Giclee print from original watercolor painting of American flag after 911
About this Item
Following the 911 attack all planes were grounded. We had scheduled a painting trip to Vermont which left the day the ariports opened again. We decided to go ahead and make the trip and it turned out to be a spiritually enriching experience. As we left Utah the American flags were lining the streets and draped on the houses. As we traveled the tiny backroads of New England we saw the same display of patriotism, coupled with an outpouring of human kindness and goodwill. Many of the old barns and revolutionary war era homes were draped with American flags. Passing this one put a lump in my throat and made me want to do a painting of it. I still love that painting! “Symbol of Freedom” is reproduced from an original watercolor painting by Roland Lee. Using today’s latest Giclee printing technology, each print is individually created with archival inks on archival paper. Even though all pigment fades in time, Giclee prints have a projected life span of 80 years when kept from direct sunlight. The Giclees are released in an extremely limited edition of just 50 prints. Each image is individually printed on order, then hand-inspected and signed by the artist. Because of this care, we need about two weeks from the time you place your order until we can ship the artwork.
