Let freedom ring

Okay, so the title is a little gimmicky. I painted several of these bells this weekend. They are giant jingle bells almost 9" across. I plan to use most of them for Christmas but was in the mood to paint and they were in the closet. The top of the bell reads "America" all the way around and the bottom reads "My County Tis Of Thee, Sweet Land Of Liberty". I did lots of crosshatching on each section to give it some detail and texture. I really like the way it turned out. I put these bells on the Etsy shop and my website if you're interested in purchasing one.
