American Dream by JournalMTW American Dream by JournalMTW
I believe the piece speaks for itself. The original is graphite on watercolor paper.

When Obama was first elected there was a TV interview held in the Birmingham Civil Rights Museum where this original piece was on display.  The piece was used as the backdrop between the two individuals during the interview.  Unfortunately the artist's name was never mentioned.  Oh well.

Thank you. It took about five to six weeks to draw. It received a second place award at the Civil Rights Museum in Birmingham.

Thanks Olga for the comment and the review. Ever seen the TV show Stargate? You remind me of Samantha Carter.

Thanks for the kind words. I did this drawing for a competition that was to be held at the Civil Rights Museum in Alabama. I wanted to do one of MLK, but it wasn't until after I began that I researched more of the history of the man. He was certainly a man of conviction and a figure-head for the 20th century.

Thanks for the kind words. Keep up the art and poems. Poems are an outward expression of emotion just much as a painting.

Thanks my friend. Obviously I did not take the photo of MLK, but I found one that I liked and then took some shots of the flag to use as a background. I used the two images to draw from.
