Popping Poppies

Fun and full of live this painting is about life and color.   When these poppies bloom you get the feeling that life is good.     The energy they have popping up everywhere.   Sometimes where nothing else will grow they find a way of sprouting their bright colors and capturing the eye.  And when you see a sea of this wonderful flowers you are thankful for the beautiful day you are experiencing.

Burst of Spring



I am so pleased with this painting as it was wet into wet and very little paint added after it was dry.   Prior to painting I had selected the colors and how I wanted it to flow.     Nothing was drawn on the paper it was all from the flow of the paint, the brush and the hand.    For someone that worked with numbers most of their life seeing this develop was amazing.   I just charged in and wow I am so pleased with the outcome.
