Poppies at Brookgreen, 10x10 Oil on Canvas

 I love poppies, and these were abundant at Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina. They surrounded a long reflecting pool and were so beautiful against the dark background of the water. This is painted on a deep stretched canvas. Look at the photo below to see why I love my iPad. It's wonderful to paint from.

  2. Five stars!! almost better than the real mccoy as your poppies will last all year long. Love 'em.

  3. I love poppies too and this is really a nice composition.
