Founded in 1863

So, the first third of the 30 in 30 challenge is done, this is painting Nr 11.  It's funny how these little wooden toy cars are moving right into my comfort zone! It is almost relaxing to paint them!

'Founded in 1863' refers to the International Committee of the Red Cross - it was founded in 1863 in Geneva by the Swiss Henry Dunant. While its mandate is to protect victims of international and internal armed conflicts, the red cross has become a general symbol for first aid and protection. It was probably formed by reversing the colours of the Swiss flag, which is a white cross on red ground.
Being Swiss, I'm of course very proud of the Red Cross....

To support this good cause, 100% of the sale will donated to the Red Cross!

Oil on panel, 5" by 5"
USD 65 (shipping included)
