I first thought to paint my husband’s medals last ANZAC Day.
They’re part of our lives, but it wasn’t until he did a talk at a local highschool about military colours, including the ribbons on medals, I realised that I really wanted to paint them. I then framed them for his Mum for her birthday!
I then went on to paint my father’s medals as well, and my father-in-law is next on the list. I have also been honoured to paint two more sets for a lovely servicewoman who stumbled across my images on Instagram!
If you are thinking of getting a medal watercolour done, do get in touch! I’d love to do a painting for you. Or perhaps you’re thinking of gifting a friend or relative a medal painting? Either way, you know where to find me!
Each painting includes a $25 donation to Legacy.
