Patriotism


“Our country is not the only thing to which we owe our allegiance. It is also owed to justice and to humanity. Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong.” James Bryce

Happy Anzac Day for my Kiwi & Aussie friends.
Do credit should be noted to Albert Namatjira for the background watercolour of Papunya Country.

An altered book I am working on with the theme of Australian wildlife.

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children. Native American Proverb
