Old Cottage with Poppies
I love old buildings. There is something true, inspirational and real about them. I do not know the history of this cottage, but every time I pass it during my walks with my dog, it intrigues me, attracts me, as if ready to share its secrets.
This original painting is a portrait of an old cottage in the light of a very early soft and tender summer evening after a very hot day. I was intrigued by the red poppies growing on the roof. In the old days the place was probably a home of a large farmer's family, as it was not unusual for the Old Ireland.
Now it is home of many forms of different life. Ecosystem in itself.
