A close friend of Ron Wesner, Bob Harriman, crafted this beautiful painting of our Drive By at Airdrie Detachment. Bob wishes to donate the painting to the Members of Airdrie Detachment and arrangements are currently underway to do so.
The Drive By program started off about our Serving Members, our Veterans, and now is about community as well.
We thank Bob Harriman for recognizing the Force and the Veterans with art work.
Bob Harriman is a senior Canadian artist, inventor, published author and Editorial Cartoonist. His first editorial cartoon was published in 1993. It’s one of several on his website bobh4art.com.
The Canadian War Museum acquired his Lest “they” forget painting for its Ottawa Art Collection in 2014. The month of November painting in the Harriman Art Calendar, annual gifts to collector of his art, have always been dedicated in memory of Canada’s military men and women. Bob was a Flight Engineer in the RCAF (Korean War) and is a proud recipient of the Canadian Peacekeepers Medal.
Teaching cartooning, as a volunteer, in an after-school program and a K – 4 Breakfast Program, face-painting in the Airdrie Public Library Saturday afternoon kids art program have been some of his most enjoyable art related experiences.
