These show stoppers are not from my garden but from someone with greater success in New England where it is much cooler.
I said I would not be doing many small paintings a few weeks ago...well Michelle Burnett's challenge in Following the Masters put an end to that soon enough. There are more small paintings coming again while my figurative work dries a bit.
Anyway, who can resist a poppy in bloom?
“Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven't time, and to see takes time - like to have a friend takes time.”Georgia O'Keefe, American painter 1887-1986
