Memorial Day Weekend

Happy Memorial Day Weekend, 
the "un-official start of the summer season",
(at least here in New England!) 
As we gather with friends and family to celebrate,
let's take time to thank all those who made the ultimate sacrifice  
so we could have our freedom.     

Back to the Beach! 
12 x 12 

Each year on Memorial Day at 3:00 pm local time, 
a national moment of remembrance 
is asked of Americans to pause for one minute. 
(A moment of silence or listening to "Taps") 
On Monday, we are to fly the flag at half-staff until noon, 
then raise it until sunset. 



  1. Couldn't agree more about the Veterans .
    Proud to be an American.
    Your painting is wonderful as is your piece in NRAS.

  2. Thanks for the important reminder of this great country and those who served, both grandfathers and my father! Love this painting, am so ready for summer!
