Talking about FLAG DAY U.S.A.




Tuesday June 14th, is Flag Day In the U.S.A……..

My flag waves on this space to the world!!!

Each and every day, my colors wave with the paintings that I post,

and in the words that cause the wind to ring around the halo that crowns all.

Freedom is not just singing

a freedom song

or waving a banner.  

It is a Pledge of Allignece to The Ideal, that is The Dream, that becomes The Reality of Freedom.

It is also, not always the land of the free and the home of the brave

that the Stars and Stripes wave.

There is a complexity that is exquisit in the maultiplicity of experience that causes pause,

and so many feelings.

The Flag is more than memories. 

The freedom it inspires is paramount to the future.

For the price paid, is too dear to loose the Ideal, the Dream, and the Reality of Freedom!

Stars and Stripes, Flag Day U.S.A…………………….

Be well.  Stephen Craig Rowe

    I don’t know where better to write you back…Anyway, you know, it took me until last year to sell a painting because I couldn’t part with what I had created. Prints, photos – SURE! But I could not really part with my paintings because they were so much a part of me – I have found a "happy place" now because I really want others to love and enjoy them as well…. The only way that can happen is to be able to part with them and know that they will bring joy to someone else.I tell my students at school that success can ONLY be measured by an individual’s idea of what success is. An artist should really NEVER paint to "sell" (obvious exceptions are jobs and commissions) – While there is nothing wrong with selling work and the WANT to sell, I, personally, create whatever I want and "to hell" with what others may or may not think. If someone likes my art, great!!! If they don’t like it, that is ok too because differences are what make the world go round. If we were all the same, with all the same opinions, life would get rather boring rather quickly! The same goes for art (in my opinion).Take care and thanks for visiting again! Maybe I should put a link to you……
