This is the No. 15 painting in the 365/2010 painting series.

Title: "Celebrating Martin Luther king Jr's Birthday"

22X28 Acrylic on masonite panel.


You will find in this painting.

A 3/4 view portrait of Dr. King, a peach and the words representing Atlanta,Georgia, the birthplace of Mr. King, a bible, 1-15-29, 81 and the first and last few words of the famous I have a dream speech. These are the words that are hidden: "I have a dream the one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of it's creed.", "Let freedom ring...", "...from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire." "...from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!", "...from the snow capped Rockies of Colorado!", "...from the curvaceous peaks of California!", "...from Stone Mountain of Georgia!", "...from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!", "...From every hill and every molehill of Mississippi."

"Free at last1free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"

I do hope you enjoy my work.
