Here in Argentina, April 2 remember the veterans and fallen in the Malvinas War of 1982. To commemorate I made this picture and I gave them away to the center of ex-combatants in my city.
The Malvinas are Argentine.

The background is a HDF (hardboard) 1/8inch painted on both sides (to prevent sagging) with ligth blue acrylic (the rough side is forward, giving the feeling of waves in the sea), and on it are applied islands, also 1/8inch HDF but painted white (ligth blue and white are the colors of the flag Argentina).
The framework is simple: eucalyptus 1inch by 1inch with a channel in the middle where HDF shoes and finished with linseed oil.

Greetings to all.

Aquí en Argentina, el 2 de abril recordamos a los veteranos y caidos en la guerra de Malvinas del año 1982. Para conmemorarlo hice este cuadro y se los regalé al centro de ex-combatientes de mi ciudad.
Las Malvinas son argentinas.

El fondo es un HDF (hardboard o chapadur) de 3mm pintado en ambas caras (para evitar el pandeo) con acrílico celeste (el lado rugoso queda hacia adelante, dando la sensación de olas en el mar), y sobre él están aplicadas las islas, también de HDF de 3mm pero pintado de blanco (celeste y blanco son los colores de la bandera Argentina).
El marco es muy sencillo: varillas de eucalipto de 25mm por 25mm con una canaleta en el centro donde calza el HDF y terminadas con aceite de lino.

Saludos a todos.

Gracias Gepatino. Y tenés razón, tal vez sea poco recordar su sacrificio sólo una vez al año…
