Field of Honor 24"x36"

What a sight in Cohasset Harbor for Memorial Day, a "healing field" of approximately 400 American flags in honor of people who have given their lives for our freedom. It is sponsored by the American Legion which is right across the street on one side of the street and directly across from Veterans Memorial Park on the other. It's a great idea and had much impact. I hope my painting does as well.

This is GREAT painting.
I love the flags and during Memorial Day I mused about painting fields of flags. Didn't though.

Hello Paula,

I administer a Facebook site called “You Know You Grew up in Cohasset When” (https://www.facebook.com/You-know-you-grew-up-in-Cohasset-when-238647849509136/) that has almost 1700 followers. I am starting a new Photo album on the page that deals with paintings of Cohasset, and wanted to know if I could include "Field of Honor" in this album. I will give full credit and will also include a link to your website.

Thank you for your time!
