This is an original watercolor depicting an older man, head bowed, praying for his country. 2020 was a very difficult year for the United States of America where I live - Covid19 fear and restrictions, riots and violence, vituperative election rhetoric, a sense of uncertainty. But for me and my husband, the answer to all of life has been a relationship with God through His Son, Jesus, and trusting Him through prayer has always been our go-to. I knew I wanted to do a painting which would illustrate a man praying, so I asked my husband to pose for me at our kitchen table so I could take his picture as a reference for the watercolor. It wasn't until I was ready to paint that I noticed he was wearing a tee shirt with an American flag map! So of course, the painting had to be titled "Praying for America." ( This just represents one country in our world that is struggling; we pray for all.)
