Minature Monet -Field of Poppies

Minature Monet-Field of Poppies, 6"x6"

Ok, you knew it had to happen, a copy or rather an interpretation of Monet's famous painting of a poppy field. This was waaaaay fun to paint. Very refreshing changing the shape to a square and working in minature, it really gave me a chance to interpret this scene rather than just copy it. I reaped all the benefits of painting from a masterwork as well as the freedom to be creative. Monet has several other paintings that feature fields of poppies look for interpretations of those in the days a head, as well as some more of my original poppy paintings based on photos of Monet's home at Giverny a friend generously shared with me.
