American Heritage

Jason Dowd's avatar Jason Dowd

This is an oil painting I created to help promote reading for children. Reading can be such a magical process, as it stimulates our imaginations and enriches our knowledge of a subject. In this piece, I wanted to show American historical figures coming to life as the boy is enlightened by the book he is reading. From pilgrims to soldiers, mountain men to pirates, it is a colorful tapestry representing a portion of our nation's history.
