Announcement: I am in search of a place to DONATE my military painting.


I am in search of a place to donate my military painting.
by Brenda Scarpa

In memory of my dad a WWII Veteran served in India, Burma, China and to show support to the active duty troops– I designed a very special painting.

It is titled “Sea Power.”

It gives recognition and praise to the Men and Women of the US Navy and all troops.

I have worked one year on this project and am very pleased with the results.

The painting is 30×40 and is attached to a backboard that is 40×50. On the backboard (both sides)are over 100 signatures from city dignitaries, military and people from all walks of life in the community. Even a WWII female pilot signed and wrote a special note. Children and teens from three schools signed also and wrote words of encouragement to the troops. Little children traced their handprints to send applause, strength, comfort, praise and love in time of need to the troops-they hope to share a little touch of family and home. Many have both parents serving in the military–in active duty…


I also designed and built a custom upright freestanding frame so painting and backboard can be set in it and veterans and/or public can walk around it and read all the words of encouragement and see the painting.

If you have an interest in this painting or can direct me to someone that I could contact that you feel may be interested, please let me hear from you.

My single goal for this painting is to encourage the troops and let them know people care and are thankful for their sacrifice and risk in keeping us all safe.

I want so deeply to get this painting to someone/someplace where the troops can see and know we all care about them.  The actual “touch of life” in the little children’s handprints and all the ink signatures and the words of encouragement  that the painting holds on both sides of the backboard is uplifting to the troops as I have seen and heard in remarks by military folks  who also signed words of encouragement to others in harms way and serving around the world.  Many of the children themselves have BOTH parents serving as active duty in the military and was important and meant alot for them to sign the backboard.  Their eyes light up and I could feel their hearts connection so strongly.

My previous painting was for the USMC and was of war and sacrifice.  This one,  I just had to make to be of “LIFE” and “HOPE” and “STRENGTH”  SEA POWER and the power of love and strength of family and friends–we are holding their (troops) hands tightly…even those we do not know.  We are here for them and will never forget them or take for granted what they do –and  I want them to know and see that through this painting!
