This week's theme: Poppies

Poppies are indigenous to many parts of the world and have been cultivated for thousands of years. They are found in myths and literature. Poppies are symbols of fertility and remembrance and they are used in cooking and for medicinal purposes. The narcotic properties of the opium poppy has provided us with some of the most addictive and destructive drugs we know, yet this same flower has allowed us to find relief from pain from ancient times to present day. There are many reasons to value the poppy, but when it's all said and done, it's the beauty of the poppy that make it a favourite.

A Commissioned painting of Beneath the Golden Poppies, an earlier original by M Baldwin, with the addition of a bluish black poppy in the center midground. The title Midnight Poppy was chosen by the customer and a wonderful collector of my originals. Thanks for viewing. Commissions are Welcomed.
