Remember them

Remember - oil on wood - 8x8 inches
The poppies this year near my fence were quite spectacular, and I had wanted to paint them, but at that time never got around to it.  With Remembrance day coming up I thought it might be a good time to give it a go...with the addition of a lark sparrow singing.  This monday on the 11th, Dave and I will head to Remembrance day ceremonies, we have missed going in the past few years.
Saturday from 10am-2pm I will participate in an artisan fair at Edith Rankin Memorial United Church on Bath Road, which I'm sure will be enjoyable. I'll be selling small paintings and cards.  Then on Sunday, I'll be at Gallery Perth for a vernisage (2-4pm) for their new show A Change of Art. I'm looking forward to meeting and chatting with the artists there.

  2. Hi Jane! Thank you I'm glad the painting evokes happiness to you. have a great weekend.

  3. Sally!
    Great job on the poppies!
    A great tribute to Remembrance Day!
    In the US the veterans sell poppies for all to wear to honor our veterans. Tomorrow is our Veterans Day! Your painting of the poppies is so well done. I must paint something this evening to honor our Veterans!
    Oh Canada!

  4. Hi Michael, Nice to hear from you, I'm glad you like it, I was thinking of veterans and those who sacrificed while painting it. my own special commemoration:)

  5. This is a stunning remembrance day painting Sally. It is very poignant and so beautifully composed. Bravo!
