Poppies painting

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

I bought a painting the other day from The Vintage Emporium. A sweet little still life of poppies in a vase. Gentle, restful tones that I like so much.

Although I like the painting very much, and It was a good price, what really drew me to it and persuaded me to buy it was that it reminds me of a painting we had at home when I was growing up. The artists are different, as are the styles of painting, mine is a quiet, gentle piece, whereas my childhood one shouted and was loud ( the 80’s for you). ¬†However, despite the differences there is something warm and familiar about it.
