Artist's description:

I was inspired to paint 'Forever Poppies' in 2014 by a personnel family loss during WW1 in December 1915.
'Forever Poppies is a symbolic painting in memory of a relation - Ernest Crisp, serving with the 15th battalion, Royal Warwickshire regiment. He was fatally wounded on the edge of Maricourt Wood, Somme in France and died later in the night in a field hospital barely a month after been posted to France.
'Forever Poppies' represents the thousands killed by the endless poppies, solders and civilian's during the war - we must not forget. The oak branch in the foreground shows the edge of a wood, oak representing strength and courage of the British army. The acorns ( which are not around at the same time as poppies) and the sunset represents a new life for future generations that the men and women during the war gave their lives too.

This is an oak panel painting using the grain of the wood to form the landscape.
