These monotypes came from a painting called Home of the Brave I made
in 1998 which paid homage to Betsy Ross, designer of the American flag.
The image of the American flag represents a place that appears to be a
potential home but now functions as a barrier on the country's borders.
This work originated in my discovery of a raft on the beach in Florida
in 1995. Each star deserves individual attention and will eventually
reflect the inherent diversity of this place.
