Red Poppies

One of my favourite flowers is back again. This time in a smaller size - 7" x 5" approx. As per the plan, we grew poppies in our garden this year, and they added a fabulous dash of colour to the spring blooms.

I loved painting them, of course. Having them right before your eyes gives you so many chances to observe them really up close. What I like about this piece is that despite using acrylics, I managed a flowy watercolour feel to it.

After working on bottles through most of the month, this painting served as a breather. It is time now for new beginnings on the home-front as the kiddos start new classes next week. Once they are back to school, I'll hopefully have more time to paint. Here's wishing you all a fun weekend, as I zoom off to enjoy mine! :)
