I created this art piece in my senior high school art class. I used news paper as the canvas and painted with white, gray shades, and black. The highlight paint is in the light blue stars and the eagle’s yellow talons. This art piece symbolizes freedom and the progress that comes from a free nation. The branches of the tree are growing and expanding to off the canvas and into the red and white strips of the American Flag. On the tree there is the caption “Drive Without Distraction”. This art piece is made to raise awareness of the choice to be safe on the road while driving. “Use Freedom to Be Safe” is the statement that every American needs to choose.
