Today's post is actually a larger, plein air piece from last year, done in Cohasset, MA with Paula Villanova and Ros Farbush. It's like a 'hero's field' with a flag for each deceased veteran. I think we need to always honor those who fought for our country, and especially the ones who gave their lives. I always think of the most recent casualties, and how their families must miss them, and how holidays are such poignant times for them. Now, from my age, I also think how many young people go into the service with such high ideals and hope for doing good, and how they learn fast how hard this thing they've chosen to do is. Well, I hope everyone had a good 3 day weekend, too.
And Paco does indeed have his own blog now: Paco's Pugtails... I know, crazy. huh?
