Remembrance Day


Today’s Remembrance Day, or Veteran’s Day and I’m always taken back to the 20121111-090006.jpgsolemn way the British mark its arrival. The wearing of poppies, the moment of silence. As an American I am so thankful for what we have, and the freedoms of our country from tyrannical rule. Those who serve are the real heroes. I’m amazed at all those that gave the ultimate for us, and to honor them I’m unveiling a new painting today. “Poppy Fields”.

  1. I didn’t know the British wore poppies. It’s a lovely image, a crowd of people with poppies on their lapels. Thanks for sharing.

    • Yes they do, and it really is remarkable. I had no idea either, but found out when I lived there for a semester working in an art gallery during college. The have a big ceremony and the Queen places a big wreath at the pillar for the unknown soldiers. There is a lot of solidarity in the populous for this event, probably because the war hit their home turf in a way that was much deeper than was felt in America.
