Through the dancing poppies stole
A breeze most softly lulling to my soul.
John Keats

Wietzie created "Dancing Poppies" with a painting knife using different mark making techniques, which resulted in a textured surface. The flowers are done impasto style.

Wietzie uses the symbol of the flower to create a special intimacy with the audience, the latter being the perfect representation of human emotion: "it changes every minute and dies too early".

Wietzie is inspired by the French Lyrical Abstract style, which can be seen as a balanced elegant style of painting that is loaded with content from the natural world, often marked by sumptuous colour. The intention is to create finished work that is abstracted and more expressional than representational.

The sides are painted dark green. The painting is varnished with a satin varnish to protect it.
