Description I originally painted this in I believe 2003 or 2004. The original is sold. Now available as print. This would be especially great as a large canvas print. Somme France - A place always tragically remembered for the 'Battle of Somme' in World War One. Fought in Summer and Autumn of 1916. This battle is considered the bloodies battle in all of human history with more then one million casualties. The poppies that grow in that region have become a symbol of the lives lost.
Ginette Callaway, Lovejoy Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement My main body of work consists of my Original Paintings in Oil & Watercolor and some Acrylics. You will also find modern graphic designs and abstract art. Before picking up the brush and getting myself messy with paint, my ultimate passion, I worked in graphic designs. On occasion I still like to sit in my design studio using my graphics software to create, it's a whole different approach. I incorporate parts of my original paintings or alter them to get something totally different.
I was born in Alsace France and from childhood on, I had Art and a Love for Nature and beauty in my blood. In my younger years I traveled and saw a bit of the world. After moving to the Unites States I became a full time artist with collectors from all over the world.
