The Poppy Journals...The Five in White by 

Discovered in an archeological dig, a set of journals were found, discoloured with age…at first it looked like a simple botanical treatise, but closer reading showed much more than that…see pages 20 and 25 and 32 below..

The “Five in White” is Pg 45 of the journals and which was really rusted and damaged by water, but the Poppy images themselves were strangely intact…except for the red ones on the first page, so far they were all white….was that a clue?
The writings on this page were even more obscure but they were able to decipher the words “Qualche devi par pre necessita di questa Sono or something to that effect” “Sometimes you need to prepare?” is that what it said?..prepare for what exactly?
They were beginning to think that they were meant to find the journals, but why?… it now began to take on a new complexion…the pages were spread out and closely examined…the one thing they all had in common was the Poppies….what was their significance?…it was time to look at the other pages…maybe there would be the vital clue they needed

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..
