Remember, Remember. Let us never forget.
This Sunday as we remember those who died in the First World War and all the conflicts around the world since I have decided to repost a number of my watercolours with poppies in them.
One hundred years ago the First World War ended leaving a lost generation of those who died in the conflict.
We have visited Ypres twice in recent years following the final days of my Wife’s great Uncle who was killed at Passchendaele in 1917. Visiting there was a remarkable and very moving experience.
These watercolours hopefully highlight how beautiful poppies are in the countryside across Europe. They are of course an great visual aid to artists providing interesting foregrounds to the paintings.
Anyway I hope you will enjoy them and remember as we do the great sacrifices made by so many over 100 years ago that give us all the freedoms we enjoy today.

A beautiful tribute, Brian, and very timely as we celebrate Veterans’ Day tomorrow here in America to honor those patriots who gave so much to keep us free.
