Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This is the view from the famous Welsh peace poet Hedd Wynn.
I decided to add poppies to the fields to express the sad lose of life for a man who did not believe in war.
Wiki : Hedd Wyn (born Ellis Humphrey Evans, 13 January 1887 – 31 July 1917) was a Welsh language poet who was killed during the Battle of Passchendaele in World War I. He was posthumously awarded the bard's chair at the 1917 National Eisteddfod. Evans, who had been awarded several chairs for his poetry, was inspired to take the bardic name Hedd Wyn (Welsh: blessed peace) from the way sunlight penetrated the mist in the Meirionydd valleys.
His style, which was influenced by romantic poetry, was dominated by themes of nature and religion. He also wrote several war poems following the outbreak of war on the Western Front.
His home is to become a visitor site in North Wales near to Trawsfynedd & Bala.

Could be supplied framed for an extra £10 plus adjustment to postage.
