Lima/Alfa Marine Nautical Flag Series

(Marine Nautical Flag Series) Veteran's Memorial Park, Avon Lake.
oil on canvas board, 12 x 9"

This is one from my "painting a day" Marine Nautical Flag series. While visiting Avon Lake (in-laws) I walk down to the Veteran's Memorial Park over looking Lake Erie. I enjoy hearing the flapping sounds of the nautical flags by the boat ramp. The sound reminds me of a number of films by Akira Kurosawa showing flags and banners waving with their snappy audible sound. (The banner scene in Seven Samurai is most memorable - credit to Ichiro Minawa, sound editor.) Am I painting the thought of sound?
