Today is rememberance day when we remember all those killed in wars..please wear your poppy with pride and think of all those who have died in futile wars over the years..

What a lovely painting. When I was a little girl, I sold red and white poppies on Veteran's day. I don't see that any more.

This is a very beautiful and moving piece. Bless you for creating it. We owe a great deal to all of our veterans. Too often people tend to forget what these brave men and women --- and their families --- have sacrificed to make our lives lived in freedom possible. I love this country, and I love the beautiful piece you painted. Thanks again.

Thank you so much for linking our challenge at the Muses to the very emotive theme of remembrance. You have created a beautiful interpretation on the theme.

Timely and quite fantastic!

Lorraine, That is just beautiful..and moving (as others have said). I didn't know that wearing red poppies meant you were remembering veterans. How wonderful! Thanks for reminding us, though I do often think of those who give their lives for our country. My son, a marine, will be leaving for Afghanistan, as a translator (who will also have to fight). He now speaks Russian and Pashtu.

Lorraine, your painting is exquisite and so, so touching. Perfect for Remembrance Day and a great use of blackbirds in the design.
