Folk art piece on felt. Two red poppies plus one pink. 8.5 x 11 inches, by artist Kathy Poitras. Completed June 20/21.
My friend Debbie and I were walking and we spotted these glorious poppies in someone's front yard. I had an incredible urge to immortalize them in a hand embroidery on felt.
The original art is for sale.
You may purchase hand made, made to order extra large photographic art cards of "Poppies in the Sun " that I call "Art Travelers". With an image size of 8.5 x 11 inches. An "Art Traveler" is an extra large handmade card, mounted on sturdy acid free Bristol board. The photo is signed by me, the artist. The artist statement about the painting is printed on the back of the card.
"Art Travelers" are individually made. Not mass produced. A special art card you won't find anywhere else.
It comes with an envelope and is blank inside.
The thing I love about this unique hand made art card, is that it can be sent to anyone, anywhere. It is big enough to really show off the art, and can stand beautifully on a shelf, or can be placed in a frame and hung on a wall.
Receiving one can give an art appreciator much joy. Joy when initially opened. Joy at the message you write inside, and years of viewing pleasure.
Much care and attention, and love goes into ensuring the image does justice to the painting. That the card itself is just perfect, and can create the desired effect.
I gave one to some friends who were moving away. Years later I went to visit them, and the card was proudly displayed on their buffet. It looked beautiful!
Please note that the watermark is not on the art card you will receive.
