In the United States, on the third Monday in May, we commemorate all the service men and women who lost their lives in battle by honoring their memory with our "Memorial Day" Holiday! It is a very solomon and sacred day! There are local parades, visits to the cemeteries, wreath laying ceremonies, and so much more.
On my way to my MFA art class last Friday I walked through the historic Boston Common to take a few photos to share with all my art blogging buddies!

|I did this painting / collage a while back to commemorate Memorial Day!|
|I am still taking the portrait painting class! This one is almost done! I loved the model! A very interesting face! The teacher wanted us to not only make a successful portrait but more important a successful work of art! I like that task!|
