It looks like miles of white crosses marking the former battlefields of Verdun, France, site of the longest battle of World War 1. The battle was fought from February to December 1916, 302 days in all at the cost of 714, 231 lives. This battle became a symbol of both the determination of the French army and the destructiveness of war. It is a sobering site and reminds us still of the huge cost war demands.

Creating portals of light, love, joy, beauty, compassion, hope, and gratitude is my lifelong passion and gift for the earth, hence the name of my art business, For the Earth. My mother painted in oils when I was young and encouraged my own drawing, painting, and handcrafting in all forms. My father, the photographer, gave me my first camera at age 8. As a result of these loving influences, I am a lifelong student of both mediums. I am grateful to my wonderful Pacific NW painter teachers, Stan Capon and Edi Olson, for training my eye and technique. I hope you will enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed its creation.
