Orange Poppies

Orange Poppies

Another splash and splatter that turned into orange and yellow poppies ....This one was a bit more challenging as I had to lighten some of the darker splatters to give more form to the poppies -- fun.

We had a great trip to Tryon Palace yesterday. Though the weather threatened and we even had a few sprinkles, we were so fortunate that we were touring the buildings during the 'drizzle' and on the grounds in the gardens during the sunshine! Lunch was fantastic and everyone enjoyed learning more about southern gardens and NC history.

Today it's a return to our oral history project, more rain, and more meetings.

Hope your day is terrific!

I think this is your best yellow poppy painting yet -- but they are all so good -- how can I pick one over another. Love the colors an shading and both on the the leaves. The entire composition is perfecto!! WOW

And so glad your trip went well yesterday.
