Visual artist Steve Penley saluted the American flag in a stunning new Independence Day painting — one that will last far beyond the holiday last weekend.
Penley revealed the work of art earlier this week on “Fox & Friends.”
He called in from Atlanta, Georgia, and shared how he painted the piece throughout that morning.

Penley commented that the American flag is not only the “best looking” in the world, but also serves as a reminder of our privilege.
“It is the greatest country in the world,” he said.
“And every day we live here, we’re living in paradise.”
The massive painting, depicting a sprawling and waving flag surrounded by multicolored fireworks, is a “celebration of the country we live in,” the artist explained.
Penley’s work is best known for its vibrant style.
It is distinguished by its use of large brush strokes and bright colors.
