JOIN US TO COMMEMORATE THE ANNIVERSARY
In May this year, it will be the 70th anniversary of the sinking of the Bismarck after it's encounter with the Mighty Hood. To commemorate this poignant and significant historical event, I am embarking on an oil painting of the Bismarck in the Denmark Strait. I am planning to feature this on my website http://www.wall-smacker-art.com
, where visitors to the site can view the development of the painting, on a daily basis, from blank canvas to completed work. It also intended that we shall incorporate a daily 'potted history' of the events leading up to the battle, and an interactive forum whereby visitors can participate by adding their comments, views and knowledge to the site. It would be wonderful if as many people as possible can join this venture, in memory of the many thousands of sailors, both British and German, who lost their lives as a result of the events that occurred over a few days seventy years ago. Please check out the website http://www.wall-smacker-art.com
and click on 'Bismarck - birth of a painting' to view the details of the plan; you can also register your e-mail address if you wish, so that we can remind you of the start date of the countdown. We look forward to you joining us in this remembrance, and to see how the painting develops.
