Contemporary Still Life Painting, 'Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!' Poppy Ellis
Highly decorative painting by British artist, Poppy Ellis, entitled 'Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!' This colourful painting depicts a table covered in blue palm leaf fabric upon which clusters a Staffordshire lion, its tongue lolling, a Leah Goren Tiger Vase and a platter with a black bear. A vase of poppies brings us neatly back into the Wizard of Oz theme.
Loosely painted, full of movement and light, in Ellis's expected expressionist style.
