Poppy day 2018

Poppy for Armistice Day
acrylic on canvas
70x50cm
I'm not sure if poppy paintings at this time of the year should have a narrative maybe silent respect during its making and showing. My Father and Grandfather fought in both world wars and I have memories of them talking about the experience including the loss of their friends. Both Im sure would be worried, even horrified  at the growing social divide and increasing poverty in Britain. 
What was it all about?
