Summer poppies

In honour of the arrival of warmer weather I have changed the blog banner to show a section of one of my paintings of oriental poppies. It was made using acrylic paint & is     29″ x 22″.

I thought you might be interested to see the whole composition…..


The buds are coming up in the garden, but it’ll be a couple of more weeks before the flowers open…….. I shall have my paints at the ready!

    How I love these flowers (my personal favourites): only notice your new blog banner and this piece of art of yours now. Especially like the detailed way you brought the hearts of these flowers alive … I truly hope summer will allow you to dedicate plenty of time to your art as I know it makes you feel happy (and me as well 😉 )

  3. I think this is my favourite one of all and so like you…
