Elissa's Poppies: 9 x 12
This is another "Hide & Seek" piece that I am putting in the upcoming Crane Estate / Castle Hill show. The painting is my interpretation of my friend Elissa's patch of poppies in springtime. The buds are just about to emerge into their orange-red blossoms. It looks like a mad tangle, but the blues and silvery greens are so very lovely. Can you find the hidden something?
Snake heads rising through a wicked tangle of silver foliage,
their carmine fiery tongues waiting to emerge...
