Take a look at “Poppies Galore” by Ruth Francis
Gallery Wrap 30 x 48?
“All my Poppy paintings are dedicated to my uncles, cousins and many that I never knew who fought in World War I.”
Throughout history, after a major war, red poppies seem to pop up in the battlefields and on soldier’s graves. Poppy seeds lay dormant in the soil and when the soil is heavily turned or dug up it causes them to sprout. The most detailed of this event took place in WWI in Flanders Field, Belgium. In the craters where bombs fell and on the mounds of rubble, “Poppies Galore” bloomed everywhere. The heavily churned earth and the high concentration of lime from the limestone buildings made the perfect catalyst for the poppies to grow.
