In a simple glass jug there is a bouquet of poppies adorned with other wild flowers. In addition to the red poppy, the bouquet consists of yellow summer arum and foxglove as well as blue lupins and ears of corn. The background is kept in different shades of green, so that the colors of the flowers stand out in contrast. The colors are decisive in the work, which celebrates a relaxed freshness and the “bonne vivre”
