Orange Poppies and Marsh
Thank you all for your most kind comments yesterday. These challenges are fun and are certainly an opportunity to learn and to stretch a bit! I'm looking forward to the next one!
Meantime, a bit more relaxed and playful painting (grin!). I love red poppies, and our highway department plants them each year in their beautification of our roadways. But the orange poppies, too, are charming in their sunshiney way, and so I thought I'd paint the orange ones, especially cheerful on a weekend filled with rain.
While tree buds are popping, daffodills and crocuses are blooming, we're in store for a bit of snow tonight. It'll be short-lived as most of our snows are, but it may be nice to have 'just one more' dusting of the white stuff before spring swiftly moves in our hot summers.
Have a great Sunday!
