Italian Poppies on a Golden Morning
Original oil and gold composite
36 x 36 in (91.44 x 91.44 cm)
Artist's Notes: I discovered these poppies at the Contessa Hamilton's fatoria (farm) in Tuscany where I was teaching a painting class. It was a rare site to have this many in June but this year there was a bounty. The students and I sat in the poppies, painted the poppies, picked and wore the poppies. That started my love affair with them. In the years since, I've arranged them and experimented with them in many difference compositions. Still they fascinate me. - Karen Framed in gold with white liner: 42.5 x 42.5 x 2 in.
