All About Them- Not Me

Today I have spoke with the most amazing men that have served our country and are involved with the VA here in Central NY. Writing a letter for now. I will come back with the latest in posting progress on showing "A Marine Series - A Parent's Perspective.

New painting. Cameron's Sister's Photo

Still working on several paintings. Starting a new one of Cameron's Sister. This series is from a marine parents perspective. I am hoping it portrays a bigger picture. This is about the families. "Homecoming Hug" represents the families in that most precious moment of holding our loved ones in that "Safe at last" hold.
When Forest was deployed I often would go through my days thinking I wish Forest was here to experience...
Well, Cameron is out on Embassy Duty in Egypt and his family is here in Central NY. Like Forest I know his family is thinking of him. His sister had a choral performance and I am sure they were thinking, "I wish Cameron could see this."
They are on our minds and hearts. I will show more of this watercolor as I go along.
