Memorial Day thought-
I dropped by my friend Anne Marie’s the other day, and there on her porch was a painting, waiting to be shipped. To say Anne is a talented artist is an understatement. Not only is Anne Marie a talented artist, but her husband Garth is a gifted landscape artist. Last night, Anne was featured on a local news story about Project Compassion. She and 4 other artists have taken on the monumental task of painting portraits of fallen soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan and giving the paintings to their families. So far, they have donated their time and talents and painted about 1,500 portraits. They only have about 3,500 to go! What an amazing gift of love.
