“A child ran through the meadow on a sun drenched summer day
And then he stopped his play
And kneeled in a field of poppies.”
I am impatiently waiting to see blue skies and fields of flowers again. I painted this representation of how I remembered seeing Dartmoor one wonderful summer, when the fields of barley and wheat were yellow ripe, and where red poppies and blue cornflowers grew in wild abandon. No matter where I am, I will always be grateful for that golden summer and to Shane who gave it to me.
I’ve used A3 Canson pastel paper with Schmincke, Faber Castell and Unison pastels.
