Here is my latest: "Rememberance" Anzac Cove, Gallipoli.

Painted specially for the Gallipoli Memorial Club Awards. It depicts respect and rememberance to those who fought bravely in the Gallipoli war.

I chose Anzac Cove as my landscape as it is had a great significance during the Gallipoli war. The bayonet rifle with the anzac slouch hat stands facing sunset as if to salute in respect. And the healthy bush of red poppies growing at the foot of the rifle are a symbol of rememberance.

Even though I am not of that generation, my respect still stands strong for any veteran who has bravely served his country and I have painted to the best of my ability what I believe best depicts the Gallipoli creed. "I hope you like it".
