This is a colored pencil painting that I did based on a photograph of a still life that I put together. The idea formed in my mind because of materials of my wife's grandfather that we were given after his death many years ago. He served in World War I and his pocket watch is present in the painting along with the watch fob medallion and his glasses. The text component of the piece is taken from a small booklet that he received that had a list of the equipment he was issued, a list of his moving days, pay days, and a list of thirty "don't forgets". A small sample of these don't forgets are shown and represent the title of the piece. I felt that the piece needed a human touch and I placed a World War I soldier standing in a field of poppies. The soldier is not my wife's grandfather, but is an admirable stand-in. The date of arrival in France and the date that he left for the front do reflect the service of her grandfather. He did survive the war and lived well into his eighties. I hope that the piece is an appropriate tribute to his memory and to all those who served in the war that was supposed to end all wars. The painting is done on Dura-lar matte surface polyester film using Prismacolor Verithin and Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. The title is "Don't Forgets" and measures 8 inches X 12 inches.
