Red Poppies

This is a painting by Vincent Van Gogh and it's called "Red Poppies". It was done in Paris in 1886 and is an oil on canvas. I chose this because it's a still life piece and I've always admired his paintings and in particular his ability to show the viewer each individual brush stroke. Even though nothing is going on and the painting its just Red Poppies, the colors and texture he uses really brings the entire piece to life. I also really like how you see the shadow from the flowers. It's not something you notice right away but if the shadowing wasn't there I don't think it would have been as successful of a piece.
