Poppy Heads

Oil on Board, 80 x 80 cms, 31.5 x 31.5 inches

As an artist I keenly observe the nature around me, the Sussex countryside and the everyday plants that can be found in my garden.  My garden freely self-seeds itself from the local landscape and each year poppies appear all over the place.  These are Autumn poppy heads before they have started to rot away and all the lovely reflections and natural forms you see on their skin.

In this artwork I have also hidden a little camouflaged friend as poppy heads with their seeds are crucial food for the birds who hang and pull them over as their seeds drop out so they can eat them.

Gardeners are too keen to tidy seeds heads away, but these are a crucial fuel for the birds throughout the colder months. The bird here is of no particular species and is camouflaged and smaller so the dead heads take priority in the picture ready to be picked and thrown aside.
