Land of the Free by Rod Chase Full Image Print Signed & Numbered
Land of the Free was painted in the early fall of 2005. The Lincoln Memorial is one of the most beautiful and dramatic monuments in the city, but it is difficult to construct a strong composition with it as the focal point because of where it stands. In this piece, Chase approached the composition “from the water” rather than from the land as in A Grateful Nation. The exquisite sunset and the warm glow of the memorial itself reflect in the dark water creating a sort of mirror image effect. And, in fact, the glow of the lighted memorial can be likened to the warm feelings so many Americans have for Lincoln himself.

Rod Chase bio
Rod Chase takes hundreds of photographs of each of his subjects, combining them with historical photographs, to produce a timeless quality in each of his works. "Being a photo-realist, I am dependent on finding accurate reference material for each painting," the artist explains. Chase works with acrylics on canvas spending hundreds of hours on each painting as he strives to present a fresh and unique view to familiar subjects.
Chase is very excited about painting our nation’s capitol. On a recent trip, he spent a week photographing Washington’s landmarks, including The White House, the Capitol, and the Supreme Court building. Rising very early each day, Chase photographed the dramatic light of sunrise, and late in the day he revisited several sites to capture the soft, moody glow of twilight. Between sessions, he researched old photos at the National Archives and the Library of Congress. Over the next few months, Chase will create dramatic, awe-inspiring scenes of Washington for his collectors by combining antique and modern photography with just the right touch of artistic license.
Chase was born and raised in Canada after marrying a Texas girl, he moved to the United States. He and his wife, Debbie, have four children, who are home-schooled. The family recently moved from the Houston area to the Texas Hill Country.
