"In memoriam..."

One month ago, my father died ....
it was a difficult event for me and my family...
Very quickly, I thought that the Valdemar set "Death of the King" could be a good way to honour his memory.
Conny from Fredericus Rex has accepted to send me a set with a special Postage cost: 
many thanks to him!
It's not the complete set I've choose to paint: I've added some other Valdemar's figures  and ignored some of the original set.
The 5 knights represent his 5 sons, the "Hospitaler" above the King (my father) represent all the persons who did their best for trying to cure him.
The colours are not "historically accurate": the blue is because it was his preferred colour and the red because he was a butcher and we all have grown with this colour around us .
The base is very simple: my father was a simple and kindly man.
Now the life must go on but I just want to say that I will never forget him....

Il y a un mois, mon père est mort ....
Ce fut un événement difficile pour moi et ma famille ... 
Très vite, j'ai pensé que l'ensemble Valdemar "Mort du Roi" pourrait être une bonne façon d'honorer sa mémoire. Conny de Fredericus Rex a accepté de me faire parvenir un ensemble avec un coût d'affranchissement spéciale:un grand merci à lui!
Ce n'est pas le set complet que j'ai choisi de peindre: j'ai ajouté quelques autres figurines Valdemar et ignoré une partie de la série originale.
Les 5 chevaliers représentent ses 5 fils, l'Hospitalier au-dessus du roi (mon père) représentent toutes les personnes qui ont fait le meilleur pour essayer de le guérir.
Les couleurs ne sont pas "historiquement exactes": le bleu c'est parce qu'elle était sa couleur préférée et le rouge parce qu'il était un boucher et nous avons tous grandi avec cette couleur autour de nous.
La base est très simple: mon père était un homme simple et bon.
Maintenant, la vie doit continuer, mais je veux juste dire que je ne l'oublierai
jamais...

  6. This so so beautifully done, that you've made me cry a bit. The love and honor you show for your father here is touching. My mother has been gone for three years now and I miss her still. And I too have my own way of remembering her and the person that she was. My thoughts are with you.
