In 1814, amidst America’s “second war for independence,” Francis Scott Key penned “The Defence of Fort M’Henry,” which would become America’s national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Key’s poetic descriptions have inspired many paintings, with his “rocket’s red glare” often coming across as fireworks. For this commemorative pen, I took my inspiration from these and other paintings of actual fireworks. I love the impressionistic aura and texture of fireworks expressed in paint, with their vibrant colors swirled into a blue-black sky. From Key’s pen to an artist’s brush to your hand, I hope you find inspiration in this historical thread of creative expression. I am grateful to TPC for expertly bringing this concept to life in celebration of America’s 246th anniversary.
