Vase with Red Poppies

I chose the painting Vase with Red Poppies.  It is a still life done by Vincent Van Gogh.  The medium is oil on canvas.  The size is 56 by 46.5 centimeters.   The painting was created in 1886.  I like how vivid the red flower petals are.  They contrast well with the green stems and buds.  The dark background and foreground highlight the flowers and vase.  I also like how the background is painted in a circular motion around the flowers.
