I must admit this is one of the best Poppy watercolor I ever saw. Breathtaking art!

Thank you Marina, I welcome you to my page also!!! 🙂
I love this. One of my favorite color and flowers.
Thank you, very much, Gigi! So glad you like it and yes, I agree on both color and flower! 🙂
It does not get better than this. Your eyes see sees a poppy and it becomes perfection. Your designs are delightful.
Ah, Micheline, delightful are your very kind and flattering words! A big big ‘Thank YOU’, my dear!!! 🙂
I love your art and how you use it on various products.
🙂 Thank you so much, Micheline! I appreciate that! 🙂 xx
You are a very good artist and deserve a great deal of praise.
Big smile… thank you, Micheline! 🙂
A criatividade é fantástica! Que belo trabalho!!!

Oh, I’m so glad you think so, Nawfal! Thank you, my friend! 🙂
Wonderful… I want the mug 😉 ,
Very creative and colorful,
Best Regards Aquileana 🙂
Aquileana, Hi! Thank you, my dear. Happy to see you!! 🙂 Have a great weekend! 🙂
Gosh; you have so many loyal readers- wow!
🙂 …good friends! 🙂
Reblogged this on dunjav.
Marina!! This might be my favourite painting of yours. Gorgeous work, full of dimension and truly expressing the essence of papery thin poppies.
What a great compliment coming from you! Thank you, my dear Karen! 🙂
Stunning! Love the red!
Thank you, Jess!!! 🙂
Wow, this post is so alive, Marina, and I think it’s great to be “poppy mad!” We have California poppies and they’re orange and lately, I’m finding I love the reds, oranges and yellows more than the pastels…they’re warm and vibrant..anyway, I love the pillow and shower curtain the best…wonderful post and art, my friend! ♥
I’m so happy you enjoyed this -hopefully temporary- poppy insanity, couldn’t help it though. They are so beautiful in their simplicity – just perfect! Orange poppies?!!! Imagine a field of all three [red – orange and yellow] …what a fiery field it would be! Thank you, my dear friend! 🙂 xx
Poppies, poppies, poppies
Poppies are so red!
See the lovely poppies
They circle ’round my head!
Poppies, oh dear poppies
They fall down from the sky
They form a giant mattress
Upon which I do lie
Poppies on my eyelids
Softer than a kiss
They cover me with happiness
They cover me with bliss
Poppies from a painter
Who strews them all about
I shall dream of dear Marina
Till someone digs me out!!
Goodness me. These beautiful poppies have turned me into a poet. I’m shocked… : )
Such wondrous red! You have set the world aflame with your talent, my dear Marina!! : )
My dear friend, Shakerarmstrongspeare,
’tis an honor to be blessed by your presence!
btw: A poet at heart is always a poet! 🙂
Absolutely brilliant, I LOVE your poppies! I can’t ever imagine having too many!
Oh, good! That’s a relief! 😉
Thank you, my dear Elena and welcome back!
I bet they look great as underwear or on a black dress.
Hmmm, I think the dress would be fun… 😉
Poppy madness – what a wonderfully creative condition, Marina. I think it may be catching.
Oh, no! I tried to warn people about this! 🙂
Thank you, Tish, I admit it is a good condition to be in. 🙂
Fabulous, Marina! BRAVO! 🙂 ~xo
Thank you, my dear Patricia! Happy full moon and eclipse tonight! 🙂 xxxxx
a good decision, Marina, to put RED into your focus! take a look into my living room: the wall is red: https://www.flickr.com/photos/frizztext/13796375974/
What a happy room, Frizz! You have decorated it beautifully! 🙂 Happy you liked my red invasion! 🙂
Hey I love your poppies my sweet friend 🙂 I haven’t been around on WP much lately but I am hoping to get back soon and then I will be calling in more often. In the meantime have a truly awesome rest of Monday and week with lots of exciting moments 🙂
Hi Andro! Glad you liked my poppies. You too have a wonderful Monday and week and enjoy the blood moon tonight! 🙂 Looking forward to see you back! 🙂
Great Design Marina …. Not bad for POPPY TECH invasion …. 🙂
Oh, thank you, Jake – glad you enjoyed my poppy tech! 🙂
This is one of my favorites from you, Marina!! Love it as the shower curtain in particular!
I’m so happy to hear that, my dear Christy! Thank you! 🙂 xx
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Thank you, dear Francine!!! 🙂
Fantastic! Stricking colour combination.
Ah, thank you very much, Joseph! 🙂
You are not poppy mad at all they look like blood flow in our bodies and who better then you Marina to present it in such a beautiful way x
The artist’s eye…. Thank you so much, my dear Doron! 🙂
When growing up I was quite fond of poppies. But these days I have cats instead. Although they like poppies they are too old to train any new poppy that I might bring into the home. Perhaps when they’re gone I’ll get a new poppy. Until then, your’s will have to do.
…”cats instead”!!! I know you have beautiful cherry blossoms too – I bet they are trained and coexist peacefully with your cats! 😉
Thank you, my friend. My poppies are honored to serve as a substitute for a while! 🙂
Thank you, Meanderer! 🙂 While you were thriving on ‘Fields of Yellow’ I’ve been swimming in fields of red! 😉 Spring is definitely here!
And doesn’t it feel good! 🙂
these blooms of fragile passion have not ‘invaded’ you Marina, on the contrary they are exhaled by you…flowers of beauty that spring from your inner beauty…
….and right now I am exhaling a very long sigh, my response to your beautiful words! These blooms and I thank you deeply, my friend. 🙂
🙂 very red huh?!!! 😉
Very. Love it
Done. Absolutely the highlight of my day. Thank you .
Your words have been the highlight of mine!!! Thank you so much! May it bring you peace whenever you need it! 🙂
FANTASTIC!! My two favorite colors in depth. I am trying to buy the print? You brought me peace . Thats very difficult to do.
Your words make me very happy and want to get better and better… I can’t begin to describe what it means to me that something I did brought you peace. Thank you, from my heart. 🙂
You are welcome and I can’t wait to hold it and perhaps design a room around it !
🙂 🙂 🙂
Brilliant Marina – the design is great, because you give us wonderful depth to the poppies and that is drawing my eye in over-and-over! Love this one, and by the looks of it so do a lot of other people. Have a wonderful weekend.
Oh, I’m so glad you see depth, that’s a wonderful compliment Mary! Their ‘popularity’ [or should I say: poppylarity!] caught me by surprise. Maybe they invaded more people’s minds… 😉
Love the “poppylarity” which is one of the reasons that people are so attracted to your art – it’s creative and fresh. The poppies symbolize new and the red is one powerful color. Hope you are enjoying your weekend, thanks for all your encouragement and support!
Thank you, Richard! Happy weekend! 🙂
So beautiful, Marina. I love poppies, and the redder the better. 🙂 Have a lovely weekend.
“The redder the better”, oh I couldn’t agree more!!!! Thank you, my dear Sylvia! 🙂 You too have a beautiful weekend! 🙂
Wow,what a real nice invasion! Long live the poppies,I also think they look good on/in everything! 🙂
Thank you very much for your kind words, Silving and welcome to my page! 🙂
i love this! only an artist as rare as you can enflame the poppies with her kiss. x tony
Oh, Tony… you have just ‘enflamed’ the artist’s cheeks from embarrassment! Too kind, my friend! Very happy you like it though! 🙂
Wow, this is so fantastic – like the name too – poppy invasion. My favorite summer flower.
I wish you would do a net book or laptop sleeve, not everybody has ipad. This I’m crazy about ..
Wish you a great weekend.
Ah, thank you, Viveka. I love that flower too! Unfortunately Society 6 still don’t do other than i-pads, but they are constantly updating their products, so hopefully they’ll add that too. [I don’t have an i-pad either!] For now -if you wish- you can have a look at CP for sleeves [for example here: http://www.cafepress.com/marinasartshop.926036861%5D If there is a design you like, I’d be happy to create it for you. You too have a great weekend!!! 🙂
Thanks for the link – Just what I’m after – 13″ I have to go with, my netbook is 11″ so that is fine.
It will be such a honor to have something that I use everyday of your design.
The honor would all be mine!!!!
So far I have done 2 designs on sleeves. You can see them here: http://www.cafepress.com/marinasartshop/s_13%22_laptop-sleeves. However I’d be happy to design one with the poppies on it if you wish. [no obligations – I’m really enjoying doing them anyway] 🙂
I’m in love with your poppies. They are spectacular. One of my favorite flowers. I’ll email you some photos of the poppies I grew last year 🙂
You grew poppies?!!! I’d love to see them!
Thank you, my dear Andrew – I’m so happy you like them. 🙂
Ah, this is so beautiful, Marina! What a beautiful color❤️❤️❤️
By the way, I can see your posts now＼(^o^)／ I’ve missed many of your beautiful paintings❤️❤️❤️
Great, you had me worried!
Thank you, my dear Violet, I’m glad you like it!! 🙂
I sleep buried in a field of wheat
is not a rose , it is not the tulip
I do watch the shadow of the ditches
but are a thousand red poppies
along the banks of my stream
I want you to come down the pike silver
no longer the corpses of soldiers
brought by the current boom
as you said and it was winter
and like the others to hell
you go sad as those who must
the wind spits in the face of snow
stop you , stop now
Let the wind you walk a little ‘ on
of the dead in battle you carry the voice
who gave his life in exchange had a cross
but you do not you heard and the time spent
in step with the seasons of java
and you arrived at the border varcar
on a beautiful spring day
and while marciavi with the soul behind
Did you see a man in the valley
who had your exact same mood
but the uniform of a different color
you shoot him , shoot him now
and shoot again after a stroke
until you do not see the bloodless
fall to the ground to cover his blood
and if you shoot him in the face or in the heart
only time will die
but the time will remain for me to see
see the eyes of a dying man
and while you are using this concern
that turns around, sees you and is afraid
and shouldering the artillery
you do not reciprocate the courtesy
you fell to the ground without a whimper
and did you realize in a single moment
that time will not be enough
to ask forgiveness for every sin
you fell to the ground without a whimper
and did you realize in a single moment
that your life ended that day
and there would have been a return.
Marina dear, I want to die in May
it takes a long, long , courage
Marina beautiful straight to hell
I would have preferred to go there in the winter
and while I was listening wheat
into the hands were holding a rifle
inside the mouth were holding words
too much frost to melt in the sun
I sleep buried in a field of wheat
is not a rose, is not the tulip
you ‘re waking the shadow of the ditches
but are a thousand red poppies .
That ” red poppies ” can invade the hearts of all.
A hug, my friend
My dear Ninni,
Your words are overwhelmingly moving.
Thank you for honoring this humble work with them.
If my poppies were to invade the hearts of all and bring peace, I would be a great magician, which is clearly not the case! If however they were to invade and bring peace to even one heart then it would be a miracle to me.
I wish you peace in your heart and beauty around you. Be safe, my friend.
Love Love Love ❤ ❤ ❤
I have the perfect room for a big picture of these. Wish I could do something about it right now, will come back when I can
Ah, thank you for the thought, my dear Valentine. Sending you some poppies virtually and a smile! 🙂
I am smiling all the way from Dallas Tejas
I think if you could see our fields of Bluebonnets and Black Eyed Susans’ you would be enthralled. I should send you one of my photographs.
You definitely should!!!!! 🙂 🙂
What a beautiful flower to be engulfed by!
‘Engulfed’ That’s the word I was looking for! Thank you, Ronnie!! 🙂
This is one of the best 🙂 Just loved your Poppy invasion, The poppy is a favourite of mine, I try to keep a wild patch where I sprinkle seeds, and love it when the poppies come out.. Beautiful Artwork Marina…
Sending you much love and hope you enjoy a relaxing weekend… 🙂 xox Sue
Ah, I can imagine how beautiful your wild patch will look when they are in bloom!
Thank you, my dear Sue!
Much love and hugs to you too and wishes for a peaceful and beautiful weekend. 🙂 xx
On no … you have been struck with Poppy Madness … see you doctor! … and ask why Poppy Madness leads to working so well in a variety of products.
My doctor has given up. No cure from ‘poppytis immodicus’. Maybe in time it will subside, he says. I hope the infection isn’t irreversible! 🙂
Have a great weekend!
Irreversible … unbelievably, today’s modern medicine is helpless.
Isn’t it though?!
Just another example of the medical committee knowing so much, yet so little.
Wow – great job!
Thank you so much, Dina!! 🙂
Lovely dear Marina… I think it’s a long time ago that you used RED in this way. Un abrazo!
It is, you are very observant!! Spring has struck! I’m happy you like it, my dear Rosa! Muchos abrazos! 🙂
Vibrant and bright …. they look wonderful against the white fabric on the pillow.
Thank you, my dear Isadora. I always liked the contrasting fiery red against a pure white background. I’m glad you like it on the pillow. 🙂
Fantastic, Marina. I love it!
Happy to hear that, Nuno! Thank you! 🙂
What a beautiful invasion by bright red poppies! 🙂
Made my day Marina. Cheers 🙂
Oh, now I’m much happier, my dear Dilip! Thank you, my kind friend! Have a beautiful Friday and weekend. 🙂
Beautiful Marina. I love poppies too. You did a wonderful job with this subject. Love, love, love it.
Love love love that you love it! Thank you, my dear Donna! 🙂
Muchas Gracias, Javier! 🙂
One of your best works yet!
Oh, Russ, thank you, my friend! 🙂
When I left for Mexico City, I placed an order for a paint by number of a painting of some poppies in a vase by Van Gogh, you know the one i mean?! I have, from there been in love with poppies (hydrangeas, ranunculus and peonies are my other most favorite flowers) the lightness of the petals, such a simple flower but so straight forward and open in all it’s brightness and beauty!! beautiful paintings, i love how it adapts perfectly to any format you present it in… xo my dear friend, alexandra
I agree with you… I’ve always loved poppies, since I was a child. It’s one flower that you can only enjoy in its natural environment. If you cut it it won’t last but a few minutes, so I’ve always wanted to capture some of it’s beauty. I may have gone overboard but I had fun with them!. I’m so happy you liked them! 🙂
Yes they are everywhere.Marina..:-)..just beautiful…:-)
‘Everywhere’ is an understatement, believe me!
Glad you like them, my dear Sriram, thank you! 🙂
Unique design ,the colors are impressive .Best regards,jalal
Ah, thank you, Jalal. My warmest regards to you too! 🙂
Thank you, my dear Pink! 🙂
Great design! I especially like it on the pillow because of its ‘fullness’. Does that make sense? The art goes well with the other items too.
Yes, it makes perfect sense! I really did get carried away with those poppies! 🙂 Thank you, Kevin – I’m glad you enjoyed them.
Great design Marina, love that! Very cheerful. RH
Ah, glad you find it cheerful, RH – they are everywhere!! 😆
Thank you!! 🙂
