I want to make all my readers aware of a awesome project that fellow artist Jacob Joubert is presently working on. Jake, a navy officer stationed here in Raleigh, NC working at NCSU's ROTC program, is developing a series of paintings dealing with the loss of lives of American service members. Each painting in the series represents each war which Americans, throughout history have participated in. The paintings are comprised of a stick mark to represent each American service member that have lost their life in that particular war. Check out Jake's site that deals with this issue as we approach our countries independance this coming July 4th. Take a moment during your 4th to celebrate the lives of those whom have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country. God Bless America!
