In recent years I have attended Dawn Services at Woy Woy NSW, Richmond NSW, Windsor and last year at Gisborne in VIC. My father was a POW who returned from Burma and I have empathy for “returned” soldiers (servicemen and women). Attending the Dawn services in country towns is a delight to see the goodwill and respect by all ages for our “services”

I have tried to capture some in my painting “Sunrise Service Richmond NSW” (with shadows)
