Thanks, Matt

This is my tribute to Dana Cooper's son Matt, who is currently serving in the Air Force. Since I'm so far doing all figurative work for our Flying Moleskins project I hoped Dana would like seeing a painting of her handsome son. It goes without saying that he's courageous, and I can see from his photo that he's also handsome and strong. I can't imagine how proud of him Dana must be. So if I had a hat, I'd be taking it off and saying "Thank you, Matt for all you have done and are doing for our country." And I say the same to anyone else who has served in our military.
