Discussion Questions/Activities

The close-cropped view of the poppies almost brings us into the interior of the plant. Imagine that you are a bee searching out the pollen in the folds of the petals. Write about what you experience as you crawl through the flowers.

Compare this painting to a photograph of an actual flower. How is this painting like a photograph and how is it different.
