Three Poppies

John Battle's avatar John Battle

The second image is my photo-study for this painting. They are small poppies that grow wild in Japan. I had an apartment in Kurashiki, Okayama Prefecture, Japan: I taught English at mostly chemical plants in the area. One spring, these poppies grew up next to my laundry stoop—a place where I put out my laundry on a line to dry.
