About: My painting shows a house only miles away from a battle ground, represented by the American flag. The flag shows the hard work of the American heroes to keep our homes safe. The house as you can see it is a representation of the homes that were saved and that are currently being saved by the American heroes. My painting represents the hard work of American heroes.

Title: American Heroes

Theme: American Heroes

Materials and techniques: Fabric, paint and markers.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes, it was good to do and think about these things.

My painting is about war heroes, and how they are not the only heroes. I believe that the true heroes are the ones at home as well as the ones out in war.
Soldier’s families are the ones who can have many problems too from the war. They never know if their family member is injured, or even dead. They have to move many, many times so that they can be near their family in the war. It is a very hard life.

Many of these people have a hard time getting new friends because they constantly are
moving to be near their dads, moms, wives, husbands, and children. It is really sad but excellent of them to let them go off to war. Though, I would prefer no war at all.

The heroes, I believe, are also (of course) heroes. They are good people, to go off to war,
no matter how hard it is to leave their family and friends behind. But, they do gain new friends. Hopefully, don’t die and return to be one with their family.
