|"NMSN" original watercolor by Carrie Waller 16" x 20"|
I'm sharing the painting I did for NMSN for this years marketing material. The president of NMSN, Sue Hoppin, and I collaborated to get this still life composition. She wanted it to convey the story of what a military spouse endures during their active duty years. In this image I used the vintage airplane tags and tickets as an indication of all the places the military can send you. The globe is to share the world mission and where all the assignments can take you. The 3 books Sue asked me to include, they are all on the subject of the military spouse and trying to find employment . The Dummies book Sue co-authored. The ipad on top shows the logo and mission statement for NMSN.
Looking forward to meeting a lot of fellow military spouse professionals:)
