My Beloved London by soniaadammurrayartwork

*Working Towards a Better World

This is a work dedicated to my city, London, England. It is a diptych with a self portrait and a painting of Compayne Gardens in London, where my Mother used to live. As you can tell the diptych has been abstracted to give London more of a colourful look.

I have lived outside London for over half my life now and yet I never lose my love for my city. Knowing how the world is changing, I found this New York Times article:
“Lovely, Lamentable London” an interesting read:

I was born in the war with bombs coming down on us constantly. I have early memories of a city destroyed by war, rationing and hard times. Then a vibrant diverse city again, filled with interest. An abundance of arts and museums and so many different and interesting cultures.

Also remembering the many protected and beautiful parks, moving traffic out of the center of London to prevent traffic jams, always encouraging walking and bicycling.

As with most of Europe London consists of small narrow streets, everything is on the small scale in comparison to the USA, Canada or Brazil. Yet there is a quaintness and unique character to the city I love!

I am saddened to read constantly of some of the changes for the worse to this beautiful and historic city.

Belchite Night without moon :-) by carlos_santero

I reupload this picture because it´s a test because in the version with moon it was a controvers discussion… (Its a test if people like this more or the version with moon)
Between August 24 and September 7, 1937, loyalist Spanish Republican and rebel General Franco’s forces in the Spanish Civil War fought the Battle of Belchite in and around the town. After 1939 a new village of Belchite was built adjacent to the ruins of the old, which remain a ghost town as a memorial to the war.
