Love, Peace, and Poppies is my gratitude to our soldiers and all the unsung heroes. They sacrificed their lives for the freedom we have today.
The inspiration of my artwork "Love, Peace and Poppies" came as I remember my Dad drove in and out French villages and D-day beaches where war museums located. I can't help but seeing millions of crimson red poppies grew all over the fields and on cracks of ruins. I have a feeling that each poppy might represent each soldier’s souls. I created this artwork to remind myself about the sacrifices and bravery of each soldier and their loved ones. The poppies represent the soldiers' spirits receiving the warmth of sunshine as we thank them for the freedom we have today. In making this artwork, I picture soldiers lying on the ground looking up to the sky saluting their fellow heroes who are fighting from the bird’s eye views. All soldiers’ sacrifices and bravery are for love and peace. Now that I see those poppies looking right through me, I want to make them proud too. I will remember about the gifts of freedom that should keeps on giving.
