Those of you who follow my posts and read it regularly remember I was looking for a photo of my  parent's home with the American Flag.... I could not find it, but then I started searching for sketches from my mother. Amazingly I found the home with the flag. 


(for those who missed it here it is again)


Then to boot look what else I found, it bought back a great many wonderful memories enjoy the Bald Eagle, even though it is the 6th of July still feels important to me to share with you.



I just loved this sketch and had to share

Hi Rocky - I love the two pictures.  I have a large picture of a bald eagle in my office in Florida.  I received it years ago for an accomplishment I had in a organization.  The eagle is a great symbol of our country.

I love both photos. As Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 stated, your mom was talented!

I saw a bald eagle yesterday flying near us as we were out for a bike ride. They really are such majestic creatures.

You know I love the one of your childhood home but, this eagle is spectacular too! How talented was your mom, Endre? I know you're so proud and hope to see these displayed somewhere soon. What is so remarkable is that your Mom was an immigrant and her level of patriotism went beyond that of most natural-born Americans.

Dear Endre Barath, Jr. 

Thank you for sharing your mother's sketches. They are magnificent! This is the first time I heard about her talent and I am in awe! Your mother embodied the true spirit of the American Immigrant who came to America with hope, joy, and appreciation. With her eyes, steady hands, and mind she was able to capture and illustrate what it all meant to her with her grateful heart. It is obvious she was proud of becoming a U.S. Citizen and to raise you as her son in a free country. That was her American dream and everything she appreciated was captured in those two sketches. If it was my mother's art work, I would take it to a Museum and ask them what they suggest to preserve and display them in your home. Then I would have them appraised and have them insured. 

These two glorious captures of how important it was to be the right Immigrants to come to America illustrates her values, so clearly with perfection. In one sketch she capture the American Dream, a home for herself and her family, including a family car parked in the garage! The American Flag was a promise she held dear in her heart until the day she arrived on American soil. Her attention to details is  a work of precision and focus to accomplish perfection. She was a good observer and it shows in the colors she chose, her textures and its graduations, and the size of the Bald Eagle and your home in relation to the flag was magnificent. And the best part is, she got everything she wanted, including a son like you!

Hi Endre,

Wow!  Your mom did a wonderful job with her sketches.  I am sure you are really proud.  Hold those close to you. 

Do you have eagle eyes? Can see these hikers up on Coffeepot Rock without the magnification?
This shows just how huge this red rock formation is. Check it out!
