Poppies remind me of Poppy Day which was observed in my elementary school. Mother would give me a dime to buy a red paper poppy. The red poppy is a symbol of all the soldiers who sacrificed their lives since World War One. National poppy day in 2019 will be November 11th.
In Flander’s Field
Gallery Wrap 16 x 20”
Throughout history, after a major war, red poppies seem to pop up in the battlefields and on soldier’s graves. Poppy seeds lay dormant in the soil and when the soil is heavily turned or dug up it causes them to sprout. The most detailed of this event took place in WWI “In Flanders Field”, Belgium. In the craters where bombs fell and on the mounds of rubble, “Poppies Galore” bloomed everywhere. The heavily churned earth and the high concentration of lime from the limestone buildings made the perfect catalyst for the poppies to grow.

“Once I began painting these poppies I got more and more ideas of how to paint them differently. This time I wanted to paint a smaller substrate of poppies growing with the wind twisting and turning their fragile little stems and leaves. The composition became a picture of curves, gold leaf and the color red.”
Life Through Bliss II
Gallery Wrapped 60 x 48
Oil on canvas
“This painting represents the premise of my artwork – it wrestles with epic themes: eternal bliss (or perhaps the illusion thereof) versus the thorny injuries wrought by time and experience. You may find profoundly symbolic narratives of human nature and a testament to our existence in the presence of a larger spiritual reality – what we choose to believe and see or not.”

“How delicate are we in our humanity… Our mind is of such intricate lace and our soul pure and untouched as the petals in a flower. We have to choose the flowers we want to wear on our crown, whether they are tough, everlasting, or carry thorns hidden underneath. We all carry our awareness, our blindness in our experiences.”

“With this painting I try to describe how wild, beautiful, intricate, detailed and complicated our human mind can be, yet still growing and evolving every single day of our existence.”
“Blindness II” – Regina Davis
Framed 13 x 15″
Oil and Gold Leaf on Panel
The idea of this painting came up the questioning of the phrase “Ignorance is Bliss”. What we choose to see and what we choose to blind ourselves with in order to accommodate the chaos of this world. Not forgetting, of course, the hidden thorns behind the blinding beauty of the flowers.

This painting is a celebration of being redeemed from the curse of the law and given life and liberty in Jesus Christ! What an awesome blessing to now live this life in communion with God!
“Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us…” Gal 3:13
This was the curser we are redeemed from: “Cursed is the ground for your sake;
In toil you shall eat of it, all the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you.” Gen 3:18
Every time I see a thistle in bloom, I am reminded of this precious blessing!

This painting is inspired by hollyhocks that I saw on the trail in Galilee in Israel. It is the product of a verse that I have been thinking about from Isaiah 35:1″…the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the rose.” To see the desert bloom is stunning, especially when I consider the sheer improbability of the Jews returning to their homeland, exactly as prophesied thousands of years ago! The Bible has a timeline of events that has unfolded exactly as its pages foretold. To expect the rest of the story is no great stretch of faith when you consider all that has already happened!

There is an amazing promise in the Bible found in Isaiah 35:1 stating that “…the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose.” The sheer impossibility of such a phenomenon never ceases to fill me with awe. Where once there was nothing but rocks and sand in Israel, the desert is now in bloom. I witnessed that these words have come to pass exactly as prophesied! The progression of transformation from arid to sumptuous is expressed by the choice of colors used. The fulfillment of this prophecy against astounding odds is also a warning that the clock is ticking—the rest of the words of the Bible will also come to pass!
