The response I have had for this work 'Sunstroke' was great. Across my Social Media outlets it has proven to be very popular.
So I have decided to make this my first limited edition fine art print from my collection.
This picture was a deliberately different take on the conventional poppy field theme. The idea to paint it came to me as I was lying on the ground in a huge field of poppies, with the high summer sun beating down on my face.
I was in my spiritual home, in Provence, in the south of France. As I was lying there, I opened my eyes and looked up, and I knew I had to paint exactly what I saw. I deliberately used bold strokes of colour in the sky to increase the sense of movement and to express the intensity of the light. I wanted to paint a composition that not only caught the light on the poppies, but also expressed the strength of the sun on them, and the sense of peace and contentment I felt as I was lying there among them.
