Inspired by the poppy installation at the Tower of London (see last post), I have just completed this mixed media artwork on canvas. When I started I had no intention of adding a distressed gold gilded heart outline and the word 'remember', I just wanted to do a canvas of red poppies. However, when I had done this it just looked like a rich piece of wallpaper so I felt it needed a focal point and message to add interest.
'Remember' - mixed media on canvas (30ms x 30cms)
This will shortly be added to the poppy window at the One Craft Gallery alongside these two collaged bookmarks that have layers of WW1 imagery and, of course, some red poppies!
