Poppy by Anni Morris

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

Acrylic on canvas
Size: 6 × 6 inches

Sometime ago I bought some small boxed canvases, size 6 × 6 inches in a sale. Last week I seeked them out and painted some cats on them. This one shows a tuxedo cat called Poppy. He likes nothing more than hiding amongst the colourful tissue paper blooms of these Californian Poppies. I think he is waiting for butterflies.

    Oh Anni- Love this one- so adorable, I loe poppies too Darling xxxx

  • Hello again Anita, I think the expression on Poppy’s face is one of guilt…he might have been up to some mischief maybe? I wish I could grow these Californian Poppies they are beautiful flowers…I love them with deep blue cornflowers. Thank tou ~ Anni :) xxx

    I love Poppy the tuxedo cat, his colours are so bold and he’s rather sleek, gorgeous eyes too!! :) xx

  • Hello Karin, my ever pet at age 3 was a black and white sleek female cat, she kept herself immaculate. I feel this one would have been male of stocky build but with a very sleek black coat and white waistcoat. Thanks my friend ~ Anni xxx

    Hi Anni, thought I’d have a look at all your paintings, it looks semiliure like what we here in Germany call “Naive painting”
    I like all the cat paintings, they are adorable.
    Greetings Heidi

  • Hello Heidi, I have often had people say my work is naive, in many ways I approach painting still like a child :) Glad you like them, thanks for looking and your words ~ Anni ;)
