|"Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire" (2001) 21 x 28
As a tribute to the victims and heroes of the Sept. 11 tragedy, Mark recently completed this painting rich with traditional and patriotic themes. The original painting carries the inscription God Bless America, George Bush, 41st President, USA and was auctioned for $30,000 at the Annual American Art Classic in Houston, Texas on Feb 6th. All proceeds from the sale of the painting will benefit the Gladney Center an adoption home and agency in Ft. Worth, Texas. Mark borrowed the title for this painting from a book he had recently read by the same name about the Brooklyn Tabernacle Church in New York which came alive with God's spirit through prayer, confession, and humility. This image without the Bush inscription is available in giclee print.
