Citizenship Cigar Box
Oil on Wood Cigar Box
It was my friend, Yukari's birthday on Monday, Martin Luther King Day. To commemorate her pending U.S. citizenship, I painted this eagle. A little reminder of a momentous occasion that those of us born here too often take for granted. I love that there is a Republica de Cuba stamp on the box. Some day maybe we will all just be citizens of the world which is how I feel a lot of the time. But until then, it's good to be an American.
