Remembrance Day 2014

https://poppies.hrp.org.uk/buy-a-poppy/
Lest We Forget......


The Royal British  Legion was founded by veterans of the First World War who adopted the poppy as their symbol of Remembrance and hope. Today the Legion is at the forefront of
Centenary commemorations.
The problems facing First World War veterans when they returned to the UK, continue to affect serving personnel and veterans today: whether living with bereavement or disability, finding employment, or coping with financial stress.
As the UK’s Custodian of Remembrance, the Legion is leading the nation in respecting the sacrifices of the First World War. As the UK’s largest Armed Forces charity, the Legion is leading in providing direct care and support to Armed Forces and veteran families in need.

Selby Art Society Demo - 4th August 2014

Thank you to everyone who attended my demonstration last night. As usual I was made to feel really welcome, it feels like home after visiting you for over 20 years now!!
This is the completed coastal scene after working on it this morning for around an hour.
As you may see, I have changed the sky completely as I felt it was far too heavy for this particular subject. The only other changes were to complete the finishing touches to the water, beach and breakwaters.

If  you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. I hope to see you all again next year!
