As we remember World War I and the victims of this war, poppies are a symbolism for the many millions of souls that perished. One of my earliest memories of this flower was when my Mother would receive a poppy from our local bank or grocery store on the day of remembrance and pin it on her dress – her way of acknowledging and remembering.
Here, my second version of a Poppy Field (#2), is a tribute and salute – this oil pastel (10×8) is of the same area that Poppy Field #1 was painted. The painting was done on a gesso prepared artist canvas board, using mainly Holbeins, Senneliers and Neopastels brands.
