Poppies – Journal Page by Monika Dabrowska-Ejmont

MonikaI love poppy flowers, they are always taking me back to my childhood. I remember our veggie patch in which grandma just spread poppy seeds randomly and they were growing between carrots, potatoes, strawberries. Always standing taller than the rest of the plants on their hairy green stems. Bright, bold and also so fragile.

Then in autumn they were turning in to brown, rattling hard heads, still beautiful in their own way. And then Christmas time we had a delicious poppy seed cake. I wish I was good at painting realistic flowers…or animals …. or anything. But since I am not :)) I just used this Ronda’s fragment stencil to create poppies with a twist. There is still red and green and brown and black, all the colours I remember from childhood, so it makes me happy. And my kitty was there to help me to recreate the childhood feelings and also make new happy memories.
