A few years ago, one of my art collectors said that she wanted something special to go above the bed in their master bedroom. I went to her home and measured the space. “O.K. I know exactly what I would like to do for you,” I told her. Having bought many paintings of mine before, she was totally comfortable with giving me free range.
I knew she loved bright colours, so I went ahead and created this poppy triptych. for her. We delivered it and hung it in her bedroom. She loved it so much that she asked me to paint two more. I said, “Then it wouldn't be a triptych.”
