Abstract digital print "Bubble Over With Pride" by artist Kathy Daywalt of the United States flag framed and matted along with a Star Spangled Banner baseball.  This baseball features our country's National Anthem in the original handwriting of Francis Scott Key. Handmade to professional standards. Unique gloss wraparound artwork. Includes Display Box/Turf Base Stand.

Though Scott Key's work was not immediately recognized as a masterful melody and began as a homely yet passionate poem, his work went on to become the greatly revered tune that was worthy enough to resonate with American citizens for generations. Don't pass up the chance to take home an art piece that drew from such inspiring influences. Like Scott Key's work, Daywalt's painting is one of a kind.

Print size: 9 1/4 x 5 1/4
Framed and Matted: 24 1/2 x 20 1/2

About the Artist:
From my earliest remembrance, I've been an artist, starting with three-inch paper dolls and their clothes.  Many projects came after.  It was the "doing" that was important to me (and still is). I was in my forties when I got a two-year degree in fine art.  Nevertheless, I consider myself mostly self-taught, other than a few independent teachers which helped me hone my artistic voice.  I always hope to continue taking classes and workshops.
 
Art has served as a powerful survival factor as well.  After three big personal losses in three years, (my mother, my husband, and my father), my entire focus changed.  As with many artists, figurative work is to some extent self-portraiture.  Depicting figures helps me define my existence, taking me past despair and into hope.
 
Although my family is somewhat scattered, the seven siblings are still very close and see each other as often as possible.  We take great joy in sharing new experiences, new babies and new art.  Among my supportive siblings, I have one that is also an artist.  She provides constructive feedback to my creative efforts.  We inspire each other.  In fact, I am inspired by all the joys, growth and even the foibles of my family, my self and my friends.
