241 years ago, on July 2nd, 1776, the founding fathers of the United States of America formally declared independence from Great Britain. On July 4th, 1776, the Continental Congress approved the final text of the United States Declaration of Independence. And a revolution was born. Happy Independence Day to my fellow Americans! And everyone else is invited over to my place for a barbecue and some fireworks! :)

Thanks for the invitation Lisa. Hope however that my plane will arrive on time, ☺ .

Very appropriate artwork for July 4th. Love its modern version.
Perfectly done (per usual).

Wish all the USA citizens a Happy Independence Day!

Is this the great-great-great.. great-granddaughter of Betsy Ross?

... ...

I really like that you made the creative decision to leave the subject faceless.

... ...

Ok, I best bite my fingers here.. else.. your eyes are going to be subject to quite a bit of wear and tear if I continue sharing the thoughts that your image here brought to mind.

Suffice to say.. succeeding in stimulating the minds of your viewers is a compliment.

And that, is an understatement.


Great piece, Lisa.

You have such a strong command and make great use of negative space towards the ends of guiding your viewers to focus on your creative message/intent.


And, but, of course.. thank you for sharing your talents with us.

The +favs thing?

You bet.. done.

I like to occasionally embrace minimalist art, purmusic ... or at least give it a good, hearty handshake. :)

Thank you for your kind thoughts!

Sorry I couldn't make it on the 4th, I'll be over tomorrow night.

I'll just scratch at a window if everything's dark.

Assumes you'll also be wearing a hockey or Purge "How ya doin? Let me in!" mask?

C'mon over. I'll make some popcorn and dig out some 4th of July M80s.

I'll just wear my Leatherface mask, because Pinhead is too stuck-up and Cthulhu is too hard to pronounce.

We'll do Fireball shots and shoot skeet with Claymores. Hunter Thompson would approve.
