It is Remembrance day tomorrow. I thought it would be important to remember those who gave their youth and many times their lives in past wars.

Poppy

The poppy has become the symbol of fallen soldiers following a trench warfare which took place in the poppy fields of Flanders. Such a beautiful and meaningful emblem. With its color it resembles the bloody fields. Its delicate, fragile flower resonates with how delicate human life really is.

 I would like to remember my family members who fought in the wars with this painting I did over the summer. May all those who have fallen rest in peace!
