It took me a couple of days to draw and colour these poppies rising through and floating on the green swirls.
It was a very intuitive drawing, and as I completed it I realised that the poppies are like memories, remembrances that rise with and float upon the currents of thoughts that flow through our conscious minds. Sometimes they stay below the surface, not forgotten but resting, at other times they rise up singly or, as in this case, in a plethora. Sad, painful even, in some cases, in others joyful.
Quite fitting as we leave Hallowe’en behind and move towards Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday.
