July 1st

I haven't painted for about a week and it makes me feel a little unsettled, as if I'll forget how to unless I keep at my daily routine.  I've sketched and photographed however, so that makes up for it a bit and I have ideas in my head that will come out on paper or canvas soon enough.

July 1st is Canada Day, but Memorial Day in Newfoundland, commemorating the Battle of the Somme and the July 1st battle at Beaumont Hamel which wiped out most of the Newfoundland Regiment in 1916.  This video clip paints a picture of just how it all unfolded.
