A day in the coquelicots

So this was quite the day of painting poppies. I took my art class to the most beautiful field of poppies today, we went last week no problem but this week we upset the sheep herder, whose sheep were at the top of the field he said we would frighten them. To make things worse he said that every poppy we may have trodden on was depriving his happy sheep of food.

Then the sheep herder phoned the farmer and the furious farmer and his furious wife came and chased us out of the field. Which was very sad for us and all the other people coming by in awe of the most amazing field of poppies they have ever seen. Even a journalist from the Nice Matin newspaper came by and lay in the field of poppies, she probably killed off great loads of sheep fodder. Oh  I am being naughty.  Anyway we ran away pretty quickly and that was that, but some very pretty painting happened anyway..

I guess we were pretty lucky to have three hours of pure loveliness in the poppy field.

    So sad that the farmer and his wife don’t have enough love and bounty in their hearts to share the great beauty and blessing of the poppy field! I know that poppy field and it is indeed a thing of great and amazing beauty. Your photos here are lovely and capture the essence and I’m sure the paintings do the same xxx
