|"Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire" (2001) 21 x 28
Several months after the national tragedy of September. 11, Mark was commissioned to paint this image rich with traditional and patriotic themes. The original was inscribed God Bless America, George Bush, 41st President, USA. Proceeds from the auctioned sale of the original painting were donated to the Gladney Center an adoption home and agency in Ft. Worth, Texas. Mark borrowed the title from a book he had recently read by the same name about a church in Brooklyn, NY, which came alive with Gods spirit through prayer, confession and humility.
