Contemporary Painting, 'The Wiveton Owls', Poppy Ellis
Wonderful, decorative painting by contemporary artist, Poppy Ellis representing her memory of a summer evening spent at Wiveton, Norfolk, watching the owls swoop over the River Glaven.
Poppies and meadow flowers crowd a medieval vase, depicting an owl in silver grey with eau de Nil highlights. A swathe of bluebell hued, fabric depicting owls in flight sits at the right of the composition. Loosely painted with thick brush stokes typical of Ellis's painterly, highly decorative style.
Original French Montparnasse Frame with some scratches, chips and knocks commensurate with age.
