This painting was painted by actually observing the original jacket worn by an Air Force enlisted man who served in Vietnam from 1964-1965.

I changed the over-the-pocket name tag to read VALOR to represent all of the military that wore such a shirt. VALOR means the boldness or determination in facing danger.

At some time, all servicemen have faced some form of danger and some more than others–all gave some, some gave all. Each soldier is a very special link creating a common goal for Freedom. The purple color of the rose placed in the pocket over the heart represents the Purple Heart medal. The rose symbolizes those who served as individuals of honorable distinction.

Size: 40″ x 30″
The original size of this painting is 40″ x 30″ depicting the jacket life size. Your giclee art work will have a 2″ border on all sides allowing for glass and mat framing or stretching the print over wooden slats for canvas framing.
