Still playing with different poses and the subtle nuances of body language. You can see in the smaller thumbnail on the first page the Vimy Ridge Canadian Memorial. I loved the clean, powerful imagery of the monument in front of the Canadian maple leaf. I opted not to include it because I didn’t want to overcrowd the piece, or cause offense by not including other equally important Canadian memorials.
Please remember to buy a poppy.
Our world owes a lot to our men and women who fought for us, and a poppy is such a small but powerful token of respect and gratitude reminding us to never forget.
You can see the final painting here.
