May 12, 2020 – American Exceptionalism – 18×24 – Day 63
Still obsessing on the long-term impact of this pandemic on our nation, I’m drawn to our belief in American Exceptionalism. The theory is that since our great nation was founded on the ideals of liberty, equality and individual responsibility, our destiny is unlike any other nation. Unable to reconcile the present with our patriotic self-image, this painting juxtaposes the American dreams of my youth with the harsh realities of modern urban life.
