The Poppy

The Poppy is my all time favorite flower, the petals look like translucent tissue paper, the colors are amazing and I love painting them. In the south (Fl.) they don't do well I suppose because of the heat. When I lived for a few years in northern Ca. I'd see them all the time, even growing wild ... Beautiful! I've cropped this painting to just the one bloom.


  1. Oh Gee I dropped the Ball!

    Thanks so much for bringing back the good times.
