Red Roses & Yellow Ribbons



These Red Roses & Yellow Ribbons were done February 2005, in honor of some young soldiers my daughter knows that went to Iraq: watercolor on watercolor paper done in an Art Deco style.

  1. When you say, in honor of, what happened to them?

  2. Thanks, Jenn. I should have put that better. The painting was like a prayer for them to come home safe. They both were going on their second tour of duty. They both came back home safe. I can't say they are ok. You can see a difference in them.

  4. Thanks, Sherry and Gwen.

    Yes, Gwen, they will need some very understanding people around them. I think they have some very good friends.
