"Pompous Poppies I" large abstract poppy original watercolor painting by Janice Trane Jones

"Pompous Poppies I" This is a large abstract original poppy watercolor painting on 300 lb cold pressed paper. The painting measures 22 x 30 unframed and would make a fantastic focal painting for a room. When you add a 5-6 inch mat and nice 3-4 inch frame you have a beautiful approx. 60 x 68" painting.

The painting depicts beautiful poppies swaying in the wind and competing for the top position in the garden. Each is brilliant in color yet delicate and flowing.

This painting will be shipped rolled and in a tube for protection. If shipped flat it would most likely get damaged because of it's size. A good framer will be able to flatten it out nicely and put it in a mat.

by John McCrae, May 1915

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
