Recently, I had the pleasure of having an enjoyable extended phone conversation with the internationally acclaimed, Beverly Hills-based painter, Metin Bereketli (left).

He is the artist of the memorable masterpiece, “God Bless America”, that was inspired after the tragic events of September 11, 2001.

And while this wonderful painting captures Metin Bereketli's love and pride of America, the same emotions are quite evident when speaking with him ... as indicated by this caring patriot's following words...

"It is my sincere honor to respect those who have served and are serving our country and protecting freedom. I wish for everyone to use these stamps in remembrance, particularly on September 11th, the 9th anniversary of this tragic day.

The repercussions of 9/11 are so much greater than just that day, and they affect all parts of the world ... Know that your patriotic support will also help those who are living with autism today and offer them the comfort of knowing that other people care."

Bereketli explained to me that divine inspiration plays a great part in the creation of his paintings, communicating important human messages about healing and the promotion of world peace ... and appealing to the eyes and heart ... that his "God Bless America" masterpiece wonderfully illustrates along with his God Bless America poem.

Moreover, Metin Bereketli paintings are not only a display of vivid colors and powerful imagery, but a "celebration of oneness with the human family in the circle of life".  His generous support of numerable charities with his artwork also echoes his artistic intent.

He has also earned the esteem of many American Leaders, such as Presidents Clinton, Bush and Carter, various members of Congress and U.S. Senate; numerous State Governors and Senators; and members of the U.S. Supreme Court.

"Red White Blue" Coffee Mug by artist Metin BereketliBereketli's contemporary works have been featured in museums, galleries and exhibitions worldwide including Sotheby's of London, The California Science Center Exposition Park, The Istanbul Stock Exchange, Pacific Design Center, Hollywood & Highland, Playboy Mansion, House of Blues, Peterson Automotive Museum, The Gardens of The Page Museum, Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios, and many television shows. 

His unbridled feeling for our beloved USA should be bottled for those fellow citizens, who need a boost in their pride of America ... which unfortunately might have collectively returned to the pre-911 level. (I surely hope not!)

You can even buy merchandise with Metin Bereketli's  "God Bless America" arwork on it ... like the personalized coffee mug on the left.

Metin Bereketli can add me to the list of those who applaud him for his patriotism through his artwork, charitable efforts, and everyday life ... along with being his friend.
