A dear friend of mine from Spain asked me if I can make for her Poppies drawing as poppies are her favorite flowers. We were staying in this local bar in Castalla – a small town in Spain and there was a huge painting of Poppies on the wall close to the window. She couldn’t take her eyes off the Poppies drawing and asked me if I can paint something similar for their house in Spain.

The painting on the wall was quite big, picturing a whole bunch of beautiful Poppies, but the thing I didn’t like about this painting was the raw ultramarine background which didn’t go well with the scarlet red of the poppies and was somehow killing the brightness of the flowers. This blue background also didn’t match the greenery of the poppies stems and leaves.
So I decided that I’ll make my own version of Poppies drawing with different composition and background, and ended up with diptych of two paintings which were adored and bought by my friend.
Poppies I and Poppies II are my Poppies drawing versions which I created for their wonderful Spanish house (the picture below shows both paintings in their lounge).

  • These paintings were done especially for me and are the most beautiful paintings I have ever had. Deyana’s work is outstanding and I thank her from the bottom of my heart for producing these for me. She is so meticulous in everything she does. I would certainly recommend you either buy her paintings that she has already done or commission her to do a special piece for you – like she did for me. BRILLIANT ARTIST

    • Thanks for the kind words Denise and I am really happy you love the paintings. It was a pleasure to make them for you as you left me the opportunity to choose composition, colors etc which is the best option for every artist. Both paintings look great in your house on the photo and as far as I know you took them on your move to your new house. Thank you for the recommendation it means a lot when it is made from you.

  • Oh I forgot to mention Deyana – I was just updating mine and noticed you had a different picture on your ‘link’ – so I thought I would have a look at your site and notice you have made a new website. I love it. Hope you are OK. Lots of Love Dxx

    • Yes the site underwent full software and design update, there are few things that need finishing and some other projects to add. The shop needs complete redesign too but with the time this will be done as well. I am glad you like the new version. I’ll have a look at your new site too. 🙂
