Red Poppies in Provence - o/c 20.5" x 24.5"

Red Poppies in Provence
20.5" x 24.5"

I have created numerous poppies on canvas throughout the years based on my travels to the South of France. Even though poppies may grow almost anywhere, as in Tuscany and Greece, I draw inspiration from Provence because of it's pure light and vivid colors. Perhaps also because I've traversed some of the same areas where the impressionist painters of centuries ago lived, played and created. Whatever the reason, conscience or not . . . another beautiful painting is complete.
