Poppy's Field

Posted by Kim Haskins on

This painting is called ‘Poppy’s Field’ and is a gift from me to the parents of a little girl called Poppy Mai who is battling against an extremely rare and devastating form of cancer:

The painting measures 6x4” and features a fluffy white kitten with bright blue eyes (like Poppy-Mai’s) sitting in a field of pink poppies against a gold leaf background. I’ve also given it a glossy clear resin coating that makes the colours and textures even more vivid.

 

Prints of 'Poppy's Field' are now on sale - click here to buy one now and help raise funds for charities that help children and teens with cancer.
