Memorials by Joan Tavolott

Posting the last sketch of the Viet Nam Memorial made me remember I had done another one. This is a local Viet Nam Memorial that we have here on Long Island. When I sketched it I had never even seen it before although I knew there was one here. When you visit it you are up on one of the few high hills we have here on Long Island. I always find these memorials to veterans so emotional.


  1. What a wonderful structure. Great drawing.

  2. That is an amazing design. I can just imagine how it would feel to be in its presence. Well captured!

  3. What a lovely painting of such an interesting looking memorial. Happy PPF

  4. Wow, it looks like a flag has been draped over the monument. And yes, extremely emotional!

  5. They are emotional! I love it. Wonderful to remember these men and women.

  6. This is a most interesting blog. I enjoyed the creativity of the art here. I have not seen a memorial quite like that. Blessings, Janet PPF

  7. Many, many thanks Ann, Elaine, Studio Kaufmann, Lynn, Jennifer and JKW for your comments. I thought this was such an unusual shaped memorial.
