Poppy Series II Begins

Poppy Garden, 6x8, acrylic
Last year I did a series of 15 small poppy paintings. The final 2 have recently sold to a collector in Australia and are en route there right now. So with spring right around the corner and poppies being such a cheerful, fun flower I decided it was time to start a new series. Yesterday I posted Shadows and Poppies, a piece very reminiscent of the French Impressionist style and today something a little more contemporary in feel. The colors in this glow in real life and the rougher weave of this particular canvas really gives the surface a great textural appeal. Enjoy!
