Memorial Day

Vietnam Memorial Washington, D.C.

Designed by Maya Lin in 1981, the walls of the memorial have a mirror-like surface of polished black granite reflecting images of the visitors and surrounding monuments, trees and clouds. The names of all the dead and missing are engraved on its walls.

Painting in the park


This is Jennifer, who I met in the Public Garden last week. She was painting the George Washington statue (see my post tomorrow) along with a couple of friends. Jennifer is a local artist from Hingham, a town just south of Boston. Jennifer was very friendly and even stopped to let me take her portrait. We talked of the merits of composing a picture and not having to crop, but she did admit to trimming a canvas to achieve a better composition; I think it's all part of the artistic process. You can see Jennifer at work below and a some of the painting she was working on.


To see more of Jennifer's art visit her at jenkellydesigns.com.
