|Nancy chose to use real military women, either active or retired, for this painting. She wanted to show each generation of servicewomen building upon the last.
The eagle fades in and out of the picture, touching all the branches of the military. Each branch is important, but as the painting depicts, when standing united they become a force. "It was important to me to finally give recognition to all women who have served our country," Nancy says. "Above all, Women In The Military is about women of substance making a difference.
"The courage, honor and sacrifices these women have made, and are continuing to make for our country, needs to be acknowledged and honored. I truly hope my painting expresses with great pride, dignity and honor the value of being a woman in service to her country.
