‘Poppy’ represented Georgia O’Keeffe ‘Poppy’ at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Pete art event Three Worlds Collide in 2015.
I call myself a ‘permanent artist resident’ at Braun’s Fine Flowers. I told the owner Tiffany about this project 6 months ahead of time – trying to get some fresh poppy flowers. Somehow all the stars aligned for a wedding to have ordered poppies over the summer. The pecky cypress frame is also special. I milled the moulding myself from a block of wood.
This piece is my favorite art work I have made so far. I couldn’t be prouder to have had it displayed with Georgia O’Keefe’s painting inside the Museum of Fine Art – even if only for one night.
