Poppy series

Sometimes you just need to paint things that make you smile, that give your heart a little lift. I've been painting these poppies, loving the combo of the vivid orange and bright green. They are very small canvases...ranging from 5x5 to 8x8. (These are just quick pics that I took this evening...I will need to re-shoot for better quality)

I'm not quite sure if I'm done painting poppies yet. Maybe I'll do some larger ones...or keep doing these little treasures. Perhaps I'll list them on Etsy.

What brings a smile to your heart?

These are so much fun! Easy to imagine how cheery they will seem on a winter day

How glorious and fun! I love poppies in the garden, but perhaps yours are even more cheerful!
Happy day!
