Notes: From the "American Trilogy" paintings of Justice, Guardian Angel, and Liberty. "... One Nation, under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all." The American Trilogy is Coyle's response to those that would change the very faith and fabric on which our country was founded. These paintings represent the three basic elements and strengths of our country; God, Liberty, and Justice. Without these elements, we are but a Society lost.

Justice: The Protector of our way of life. At this time, in our society, we must remove the blindfolds and open our eyes to how the global changes have endangered our freedoms. Justice must stand strong, tall and determined in the face of those that would change us. In the portrayal, she has removed her blindfold as to see the obstacles in front of her. She carries a sword to defend her stance and is dressed in blue, which symbolizes truth and justice. (6'4" x 8'4")
