The Day of the Seamen

The Seamen Day
Last Sunday was the day of the year where Icelanders honor all seamen.
On tis day also was decided to have an auction and collect money for a good purpose.  Some of the island artists were asked to contribute to the event which we did gladly.  Quite many paintings sold for a good price and mine there included.
The seamen were very pleased with the outcome.

Here is the painting that I painted, it is of two young men learning the robes from the old guy.

Today we honor all Seamen.

Today we honor all seamen.

We go to church to honor them and their families and remember the lost ones by placing a flower wreath at the statue of a seaman.
It was a wonderful day.
Sadly I forgot my camera so am showing one of my painting here instead.  The idea of this painting came from my childhood memory like so many of my paintings.
