A Sea of Poppies
by 
Anita Cole-Brunger
By pure chance, I met an absolutely wonderful lady. As we chatted and crossed over many bridges of similarity in our lives we eventually learned about each other's love of music and art.   During this fascinating conversation, I learned Anita is the daughter of a Canadian World War II veteran father and a Belgian mother.  Her father still resides in Belgium and is over 100 years old!  She was raised in the Flanders region of Belgium where poppies were growing everywhere.  Most of her life she has attended many ceremonies at World War II cemeteries across Belgium, France, and the Netherlands.  She is very involved with veterans.

With this background, Anita developed a love of painting poppies.   Her poppy paintings which are done with dyes on silk have a hidden message for everyone, "We shall remember them" and "let us never forget".  Anita resides in Ottawa and frequents Belgium for months at a time.  Her paintings have won many awards through the years and have found homes in many Canadian, Belgium and International residences including the Royal Family of Belgium and have also been featured in Canadian newspapers and the Royal Canadian Legion magazine.
