February 2002, 2001 NALED Lithograph of the Year
For my painting The Light of Freedom, I turned once again to my faith in God, my love for my fellow man, and my pride in America and what we stand for. The billowy clouds in the heavens remind us that despite our challenges, God surely has shed His grace on this land. Now is the time when each of us must summon our courage and strength so that, the Light of Freedom will forever illuminate this glorious country. God bless America.
