Poppies in Provence - o/c 28.5" x 32.5"



Traveling from the site of Cezanne's view of Mont Sainte-Victoire that he depicted in his paintings, there was abundant visual beauty surrounding small residences and farmhouses.  Multipal blooms of poppies with their deep red petals and purple/black pistil stand erect, protected by the dense greenery and gentle breeze throughout the landscape in Spring.

Depending on the contrasting light of day, the flowering white trees become mirror images with the billowy clouds.

A feast to one's senses of sight and scent is Poppies in Provence.
