Poppies in the Country SOLD

- by Nancy Denommee

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.


Art: Poppies in the Country SOLD by Artist Nancy Denommee

I painted the base black and then added an antique white with a knife, pulling some of the paint off to show the black beneath. Original one of a kind painting, not a print or copy. signed and dated on front, signed, dated and titled on back.
