6x6in oil on canvas panel $100.
Beautiful lilacs delivered by a traveling friend.
All she requested was to watch me paint them.
Memorial Day tomorrow.
Honoring the fallen Military is a genuine privilege . At 3:PM we will
take a moment to remember... with gratitude.
One of our sons was in the military here in the USA and the pride is still felt.
Growing up in England I remember we had a similar day called
Remembrance Day...or Poppy Day, and we all wore a red silk poppy.
It was in November. I copied the info below
During the First World War, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare. In many parts of the world, people observe a two-minute of silence at 11am on 11 November.
