Patriotic Architecture


Chad Hawkins is most famous for his artwork of LDS Temples, but he also has a few pieces of patriotic buildings like this one of the white house. This painting is one of five paintings in an art series called A Rising Sun. The rising sun brings with it the birth of a new day, symbolizing the birth of the United States of America. Each painting in this series captures the rising sun of a new day. The purpose of the series is to create a renewed appreciation and commitment to the constitutional principles that this nation was founded upon.
