This limited edition giclée print of IN FLANDERS FIELDS TODAY of which the original PAINTING was painted at Essex Farm Cemetery Ypres Belgium.
The following original painting was created on the site at Essex Farm near Ypres where John McCrae wrote the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’ which ultimately led to the adoption of the poppy as the iconic symbol of remembrance that so many countries use to this day. John had become disillusioned following the death of a close friend who he personally had to bury. He wrote the poem and discarded it-it was picked up by someone else sent to the press in Canada where it was ultimately published and the rest is history.
I have also surprisingly for me written some poetry on the same place which is included in my blog-unchanged from the words that flowed from me to pen and then to paper in that calm serene place. An incredible, emotional and amazing experience to paint this piece in the same place that this iconic poem was written in May 1915.
