As John-Mark began brainstorming for his next painting following “Classic Rock”, his mind went to the iconic image of the sailor kissing the nurse as the US and its allies emerged victorious from WWII. He then thought of the patriotism evoked by that image and decided it would be an obvious theme to depict. What was not obvious was what to include and what to leave out of a painting dealing with such a broad and important theme.
John-Mark definitely wanted to touch the nation’s rich history, achievements and its great natural beauty. Certain images John-Mark was able to work in to the painting included the American flag, the Liberty Bell, the Statue of Liberty and the bald eagle. Interestingly, this is the first appearance of John-Mark’s secret symbol, or flag. He decided to hide it in the center of the king card on the American’s at Play book.
