BLEEDING POPPY

Not many words today, out of respect for the upcoming Armistace Day.  Here is a painting of the poppies we are wearing if you don't do this where you are.  We give donations to the British Legion (who make them) .

l00 years from the beginning of World War 1 this year.

My version of the poppy


Wouldn't it be lovely if there was peace in this sad old world.

  5. Yes Polly that would be so great, but I am afraid it is wishful thinking . Love your poppy and the idea behind it . Have a great Sunday.

  6. Lovely aquarella Polly! I so agree with your wishes of peace and love but man being who he is just takes war as a game. Terribly sad to be in 2014 and still see those killings go on day after day. Here everyone walks around with his or her little red poppy. Hugs my dear, have a great week!

  9. Beautiful!!! We do wear poppies here as a sign of remembrance to those who served. Peace would be great to have. You would think that after all that has been lost in wars and fighting we would be able to see the need for it and achieve it.

  12. Dear Polly, lovely painting. I visited the museum of WWI exhibition in Melbourne. Hope one day, children will ask adults, "Did people make war?" Best wishes, Sadami

  15. Hi Polly, what a delicate and tender watercolor this is. It's just so beautiful and the splashes seem to just finish it off perfectly. I agree...peace would be wonderful.

    Found you via Myra Anderson's blog. Greetings from Wichita, Kansas USA.
