Happy Veteran’s Day

Thank You, Veterans!

Thank you to all those who have served this great nation of ours!

Those of you who have followed my work may already know that I have an ongoing tribute to veterans. I’ve painted portraits of several of our local veterans from the Korean War, Vietnam War and World War II (See portraits below). I planned on doing some more this year, to continue the series, but, the pandemic slowed things down in that regard. Nevertheless, I’d like to thank these veterans and all of the veterans of our military branches for their service and would like to say that I am personally grateful for the liberty their efforts have afforded us all as a people.

With gratitude,

Antonio Romero

The portraits below were commissioned for a poster by the local VA equal opportunity department. The poster was to include veterans of Pacific Islander heritage. The veterans were all stationed at Fairchild AFB, WA

At the Base Chapel

My wife, Anita and I went to the Chapel at Fairchild Air Force Base this morning and we found a painting Of mine entitled, “Passover Lamb”!
This piece was featured in last year’s Terrain 12 event and has now found a permanent home at Fairchild AFB Chapel! Thank you all for making this happen: Chaplain Bishop, Chaplain Ritter, Fairchild AFB Chapel, congregation and Chapel staff! #TeamFairchild #Terrain Spokane Arts #AdobeDraw

Sitting Bull

A Digital Portrait of Sitting Bull

I made this portrait of Sitting Bull on my iPad Pro with Adobe Draw in Woodcut style.

Sitting Bull was a Hunkpapa Lakota leader who defeated General George Armstrong Custer during the Battle of Little BigHorn.

He led his people during years of resistance to United States government policies. He was killed by Indian agency police on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation during an attempt to arrest him, at a time when authorities feared that he would join the Ghost Dance movement. 

Born: 1831, South Dakota

Died: December 15, 1890, Standing Rock Indian Reservation

Height: 5′ 9″

Spouse: Four Robes, Scarlet Woman, Snow-on-Her, Seen-by-her-Nation, Light Hair

Children: Crow Foot, Many Horses.
