"POPPIES GALORE"


This actually is a bigger painting on a 10 x 10 piece of Arches Hot press 140lb. paper. WOW--it was a clean white sheet with nothing on the back and not even a scrap! I must be doing better. Actually I was trying out my new M. Graham watercolors. They are made with honey so they stay soft if you keep them covered. I think I am really going to enjoy them. Don't know why I put the swirls in the background but they were done with a white gel pen. I kinda like it but did it as a whim. Sometimes my whims work and sometimes the don't. I enhanced it just a bit in Photoshop but not much. I enjoyed this piece---in fact I painted it so late that I had to leave it for this morning and I couldn't get it off my mind last night thinking how I would finish it up this morning. I am crazy that way---what can I say---art is my magnificant obsession!
