Memorial Day tribute

Many of my illustrations have All-American Flags hanging proudly.  They remind me to be thankful and to remember those that have served our country.


Flags flying on Block Island for an all American Island Parade.


Flags flying high for a parade on another Island, Nantucket, and below on a yacht circling the Island of Manhattan.

I love that you insert the flag in your illustrations. My 12 year old is getting up early tomorrow to join a group of kids that place flags on the neighborhood's front lawns for the holiday. I hope to explain to the kids just why we have the day off to bbq.

Happy Memorial Day! What fun ilustrations. They are perfect for the day!

P.S. - I LOVE your house. It is very hadsome. I agree with the boxwood idea. I also love tall grasses for a contemporary setting, but not sure about them in your area. Boxwoods are vergreen too, so pretty year round.

As I am half French, on Memorial Day, my heart goes to the many soldiers who gave their lives to free France back in 1944-5...

mary-laure,
we went to normandy and my mother-in-law said in her lovely dutch accent, "Those poor boys had to get off the boat and fight in wet boots" spoken like a true mother.
