Bright Red Poppies.

First off today I would like to shout out a BIG "YAY"!!!!!! I reached the exciting number of 300 Followers on this Blog and I wanted to say a BIG "THANK YOU" to everyone who is following, who takes the time to read and comment, you guys rock :)

I wanted to share some of the Artwork I have been creating recently. With all the Flowers I am surrounded by it is inevitable that I would be Painting a lot of Flowers. I am really busy preparing for a Gallery Show next week (those photos will be posted after the Artist reception next week :) But I am still creating pieces to go into my Etsy Shop too. So, here are a couple. You all know I LOVE my POPPIES, hope you enjoy these too :)

Bright Red Poppies

This piece I worked in Yellow and a couple of different Red Acrylics and drew in the centres with black ink.
Detail shot :)


On this piece I wanted a more playful background and so I played with a combination of inks.

Hope you are having a Wonderful Wednesday!

Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.

Congratulations T ! I still have a ways to go before I hit the 300 mark.

Your poppies paintings are striking, I can't help but think; "Now how stunning would that look as a silk screened scarf?" With your eye for color and design I bet you could be a top fabric designer.
