Catharine's Silk Poppy

Virginia LaMont Naegeli's avatar Virginia LaMont Naegeli

The inspiration for this painting came when I was in a local restaurant. I thought the walls needed a large poppy painting. As it turns out the owner had a daughter named Poppy and it was a perfect fit. It was so exciting to see my dream come true. This restaurant owner places several artists works on her walls. She likes to promote the arts and local artist which was the perfect fit. This painting is for the poppie lover who wants to fill their home with a piece of art that can not be reproduced. This 100 % silk was painted with silk dyes then steamed for three hours. Next, is was hand washed and ironed. For the final stage it was mounted to this lg canvas ready to hang on your wall. 100 percent of this sale goes to Brain Tumor Research Dr. Al-Holou Brain Clinic UofM
