High Quality Original Oil Paintings @ BO MAGLUYAN FINE ART


11” x 14” Oil on Canvas-board

Brief Description:
Admissions material from the U.S. Naval Academy inspired this painting. In high school I completed half of my application to Annapolis before I decided to stop. One afternoon I was paging through their material and contemplating my decision when I saw a photograph that reminded me of the American flag. There was only one catch—the flag would be rotated 90 degrees. I produced some preliminary sketches of different views of the marching cadets that would allow the flag to be displayed properly. However I soon decided that my choice to paint the cadets in a rather abstract fashion made it logical to keep the flag rotated. At hat time I also drafted plans to paint objects representing stars into the blue field of the flag and toyed with repainting the entire piece onto a shaped frame.
