Do the Hokey Pokey by Suzy Pal Powell

'Do the Hokey Pokey'
I am so thankful that our children can run and play without worry...thanks to our Military men and women, over the years,   Fighting and preserving freedom for us. Let us always remember what has been given to allow us to be free. I am thankful that so many of my family members served, giving years of their lives to help make that happen.   A special thanks also to the families of these special people.   My Dad, Brother, Husband, Nephew, Uncles, cousins and friends served, as well as many in Ken's family. Let us remember on this Memorial Day as we stop to pay tribute to them.
This painting was done after a visit to NY in 2002.  The kids were romping and playing in Battery Park after the horrible attack the year before.   This is done in Yupo paper using watercolor and  several different tools and stamps to move it around and give it texture.  In real life you couldn't see the buildings. Just trees.
This painting won 3rd place in the Wyoming Watercolor Society, judged by Robert O'Brien.
