Two BIG POPPIES!!!




Well, I just took a deep breath and painted them big.  These are on 15 x19 Kilimanjaro watercolor paper and adhered to a 16 x 20 Masters Baroque Artist Panel that I spray painted painted black. Painting big is really a different animal altogether but I am determined to not be intimidated by BIG.  And also---the perceived value $ amount is highter---even thought the same work goes into smaller ones. Go figure... 

I will spray these with varnish and they can hang without frames.

These are stunning and I love the way you have incorporated black (I am very partial to black, hehe)

Beautiful. Poppies are my favorite. I wonder why it is called Kilimanjaro paper?

Martha, Thank you for your comments on my blog. I left an answer to your question, Who is Misty?, with my red journal page post.
