Memorial Day

"Love Letters" original watercolor by Carrie Waller.  Painted during Brian's most recent deployment to Afghanistan.  The photo was taken as Brian was leaving for Afghanistan.  Included are letters that he wrote to the boys.
In honor of Memorial Day and everyone currently serving or has served in the past, I thought I would share all of the military inspired paintings that I have painted.  My hubby is active duty now and so is his brother.  So our family is very aware of the sacrifices that are made by anyone that has served.  Fortunately we have been spared the ultimate sacrifice, but my heart goes out to those families.   So thank you to all that are serving or that have served.  My husband and I have a long line of service members.  My Dad, Brian's Dad, and several Grandfathers.  Enjoy your Memorial Day and the Freedom provided by the Armed Services.

  1. Awesome Carrie! Love them. And thank you and your family

  2. Thank you for your service too, Carrie. It isn't easy being a military wife, never knowing if and when you will have to move, waiting at home while your spouse is deployed. Love your homage to all military men and women with this post.

  3. I remember when you first posted this. I was astounded by it and I still am. I love the sentiment behind it too :0)
