Californian Poppies and Lobster, Pednolva View, 2022

Acrylic on canvas
91 x 122 cms
Framed size: 107 x 138 cms


These poppies may be Californian, but it is the vivid turquoise of the Cornish sea that gives this painting its tropical feel, lapping on a sweep of perfect golden sand. Despite this evocation of pacific warmth and ease, it is unmistakably of St. Ives, the Pedn Olva hotel perched on the rocks above the beach in historical splendour, and the vivid local lobster on a platter, ready to be consumed. The floral patterns of the fabrics also echo the natural world in profusion: the designs of the cushions, tablecloth, rug and even the ceramic objects are filled with blooms and leaves, an interior junglescape over which the magnificent vase of scarlet, coral and white poppies preside.
