The American Menu America has many ways to represent the nation, such as Hollywood movies, American football and timeless land marks like Mount Rushmore. Sadly, America has been recognized for more than just the home place of the Wild West or a nation of independence and freedom.

yellow for the moon and its highlights, very clearly states that it is the focal point for this piece.

In this pond, the viewer can see the reflection of the moon and the dark moody…
