In memory of Soldiers all over the world who have lost a part of themselves to War. In this painting I made a combination of three ideas into one. The soldier wearing a helmet with the message “war is Hell” is from a picture that I saw one day somewhere, and the message really got to me. Then there is the shadow in the background, showing the outline of a soldier running for cover as there is an explosion behind him. Finally there are poppies along the soldier’s heart and by his heart, to symbolise the lost brothers in arms and the memories they hold.
