I really like orangey/red poppies - I only wish they lasted longer! I don't have any poppies in our yard now and every year I say I want to plant some. Maybe this will be the year.
After I finished my poppies, I wasn't done painting so I had prepared another panel earlier in the day and decided I needed to paint one more daisy painting. Who knows - I love daisies so much that maybe my 'one more' will turn into my version of waterlilies.
I have always loved floral paintings, but have never enjoyed painting flowers. Mostly because I find it very hard to capture the delicacy and translucency of the petals. I have been enjoying them this week though. Maybe that's the answer: loosen up and just enjoy the process - literally and figuratively.
