Coming from a family in which we have all served, I think you have done this scene justice in the way you have rendered it Anthony, great solid and dynamic brush strokes and the color pallet doing justice to the vegetation also a small remembrance of those who are still out there and in Aldershot cemetery. nice one

Thankyou Malcolm for your perceptive comments. You are quite right and I do echo the absolute need for remembrance. Not dwelling in the past, but learning lessons from it. I was trying to convey the emotion of that time to some who perhaps have not experienced such things. A scene of shattered rock and earth and of shattered lives. But looking forward in hope for the future. Once again many thanks, your comment is much appreciated.

You have a gift for this type of expression Anthony and there is a lot in this painting. I like it very much.

I like this. Looks very interesting.

PS My dad was a lecturer inn electrical engineering. When he retired he was like a kid let loose! All happy and smiles, enjoying his freedom again. Hope it is good for you.
