I will remember you.....


Meet my father Wallace Keith. He served first in the navy, joined illegally at 16 and they never found out. After the navy service he joined the airforce and retired with a pension. He died of Cancer at age 55. I will remember him, though he died not in war time but I think this is a day you remember those you have loved and lost. I made the layout with a 12 12 piece of carboard I had in the studio, used some scraps from a book map used the transfer technique on the photos of my dad and drew and painted the poppies.
