If I could choose to be in any place that would grant me the most serenity, a poppy field would be my first choice.
Because that's the thing about poppies, you never see only one in the wild. I felt it was essential to paint just one poppy, only one, to show off it's unique beauty. Painting only one object also focuses the viewer, and gives off a bold appeal.
