Poppy Flower

Poppies, Art limited edition print, original watercolor, large size by © MariAnna MO Warr

The Poppy is one of the most widely used symbolic flower around the world. Ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Roman societies linked it with sleep due the sedative effect of the plant’s sap. The Greeks in particular tied it to sleep because of Morpheus, the God of sleep.

Each time, I try to capture the changing nature of the flower, lit by the sun; hidden in the shadows or full of light
