Unfurling Poppy

60cm (24″) x 60cm (24″) (Not framed – oil on board)

A childhood spent gardening with her grandfather, meant that Eadaoin Harding Kemp was always going to have a grá and fascination for nature’s incredible bounty. One particular occasion, having previously spent some time with her grandfather in the garden, sowing quite a lot of rather uninspiring looking, brown seeds, Eadaoin returned, only to be greeted by a carpet of rich, red flowers. They were everywhere; poppies all over the place; all wonderfully bright red, full of life and rather beautiful. Eadaoin was instantly enamoured with the stunning flower and went on to grow many poppies in her own garden. This colourful and bright painting in oils, is Eadaoin’s take on an unfurling poppy. Not very sturdy at  this stage, the flower is, in fact, almost ‘crepe paper’ like in texture as it begins to open out into the world – but despite its fragility, nothing can take from its vibrant and exciting shade of red and the power that it holds, above all others, in any garden setting.
Eadaoin’s particular style of painting is instantly recognisable and very striking. Her work is really impactful in any space – this particular painting, oil on board, is unframed but doesn’t require a frame and stands alone, rather fabulously.

Your Shipping Choices Explained

NOTE: Due to Covid 19 areas are experiencing delays and some restrictions on deliveries – please enquire directly with us if you are concerned. 

We generally use the postal service here in Ireland, called An Post. It is very reliable and we take the utmost care in packing all our pieces professionally to ensure that have the very best chance of arriving safely in their destination.  This option would be at your own risk.

We can also offer you our own cargo insurance at a reasonable price – weight and piece dependent. Please enquire with us for this option. (This will also be packed by us and carried by An Post as above)

Taking into account the delicate nature and cost of your purchase, if you would prefer it travel in a specialized and insured Art Box with an outside Art Handler, then this can be arranged.  For paintings up to and including the size 120cm x 100 cm – prices with an insured professional courier, range from €75 – all the way up to €475 (size and location dependent) NOTE: This option will take considerably longer as we will have to outsource it and get quotes for you before we proceed.

For paintings or items falling outside of those largest dimensions then a further discussion is required – as it may need to have a bespoke crate to be built for it and a further cost will apply.
