|5/29/21 Sunset Hills Memorial Park, Bellevue|
The cemetery where I pay my respects on Memorial Day weekend is undergoing construction at its main entrance. The display of flags at Sunset Hills Memorial Park’s secondary entrance wasn’t nearly as grand as usual, but it has become my personal tradition to sketch the flags every year, so I did it anyway. It’s always an interesting challenge to capture the motion of flags. It’s also a good opportunity to remember family members I’ve lost as well as people I never knew but who gave their lives for my benefit. This year I feel more fortunate and grateful than ever.
