Long Blue Line

The tradition of the Long Blue Line is the legacy of all who have faced the challenge and ultimately graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado. In this painting, a long blue line stretches along the ground under USAFA from left to right. It is a picture of the long, adrudous journey faced by all who persevered through the great opportunity of the Academy, set at the beautiful foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
