150th Anniversary

This past weekend also celebrated the "Mare Island Naval Cemetery 150th Anniversary Commemoration ". I decided to paint something small to submit for the silent auction. Not sure if my painting found a home by the end of the day? But all proceeds will benefit next year's Mare Faire.

OK we need to go to a cemetery. Colma? Piedmont or St. Mary's in Oakland? This is a really neat work.
