Poppies are my obsession. When I paint poppies I don´t relate them to war or any commemoration for that it´s been recognise during the years.
This enigmatic flower it´s been telling me different stories since I was a child. Summer time in Spain is very hard if you have to work in a farm. They were a refreshment for me, a dream that one day will come true. The milky texture of their petals was an enigma for me. I could not understand where it that comes from. Now, as an adult, I try to close my eyes and remember all those images that I translate into my paintings, like this one.
