America's Largest Flag

"Unfortunately, the biggest flag in God's creation won't be an actual flag. It will be a painting of one. On the other hand, it won't be some wimpy 2-D representation of the Stars & Stripes, it'll be a really cool artistic, not-quite-3-D-despite-the-claim rendering of a fluttering flag."
Quote from the Houston Press

Artist Scott LoBaido is well known for painting American Flags all over America, have you ever seen one? Well of course Houston is getting the biggest one, remember everything's bigger in Texas!

Scott started the painting on June 14th (flag day) and his goal to finish is this weekend, July 4th! He is painting on top of a building near Hobby Airport, unfortunately (for me) you can only see from an airplane.. My father only flies Continental which only fly's out of Houston's other airport (IAH)

Go check out his work: Scott LoBaido

Also you can watch a live video of him and his crew painting: Live Video

Great way to kick of the Fourth of July Weekend!

God Bless America!
