A Veteran’s Heart

I am honored to have completed this commission oil painting perspective of American flag blowing in the wind for Mark Dominguez at Rahnama Law in Oxnard.

Mark is an Army Veteran, who joined the military at the age of 18. He was stationed in the Dominican Republic as reconnaissance infantry and served 17 months in Vietnam.  His experiences there deeply cultivated his passion for patriotism and service. It also carved deep wounds with the loss of close friends to wartime casualties.  He went on to serve 26 years in the Ventura County police force, most notably as an undercover narcotics officer. He enjoys fly fishing, sunsets at Rincon and live performances. This painting is to celebrate his life of duty.
