  • Title: Prelude to a Painting 1
  • Artist: Maiden Curly Crown
  • Description: One of two paintings I'll be working on for the next week or so.
    Both images I based these one were taken from "the day in photos" type photo essays done by Yahoo and/or the BBC.

    This is an American veteran last Remembrance Day...or is it Veteran's Day (sorry, I'm Canadian). It's the look on his face I love so much...so lonely but proud.

    The canvas is actually white but I didn't have my flash on.

  • Wow, he looks so sad, as if he can still remember the times of the war & the suffering and all that...I'll keep an eye out for the finished version!!!

  • I'm sorry about your grandpa. A lot of my family fought in the Wars on all the Allied sides...did your grandpa ever tell you about the War?

    I can't wait to paint his eyes, they're such a beautiful shade of china blue...they really add to the picture.

  • As soon as I saw this I got a shiver done my spine. It's so moving, the veteran's face... it really just moves me and it makes me think of my grandpa who passed away back in September. My grandpa faught in WWII.
    I can't wait to see the finished version of this!
