North Light Shop is proud to offer Land of the Free, with partial proceeds going to support the Special Operations Warrior Foundation!
In 2007, oil painter Jane Chapin bought a motor home with the simple plan to paint in each state. A few states into her cross country journey, she discovered much more than painting.
"I learned to slow down and look back more often. I learned to turn around and explore a side road or follow a sign. America is full of wonderful secrets in every state that you can only find by unplanned travel.
"The more ground I covered, the more I realized how blessed my life was. The realization of my freedom on the road reawakened me to the debt I owed our veterans, past and present. I began thinking of the paintings as symbols of the land they had fought to defend. I wanted to thank those who allowed me the privilege to wander freely across this great country and do what I love."
Land of the Free is Chapin's tribute to America's heroes throughout history and those who serve today.
Along with each state painting, Chapin gives a glimpse of the state's history and a modern hero's story from that state. Enjoy beautiful landscape paintings, quaint country scenes, rustic compositions, waterfront scenes, and more. Jane narrates the story behind the painting itself and pays tribute to a veteran from that state with brief stories.
Partial proceeds from the purchase of this title will be donated to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
