Poppies In A Blue Cup

12 x 12″

acrylic on hardboard

Original acrylic painting on hardboard, signed on the back.  This piece is ready to hang but also looks very nice in a floater frame.

Poppies are a beautiful flower to paint.  They remind me a lot of the figure, delicately dancing around on spindly foliage. They defy gravity, as their flower heads look impossible large for their delicate stems.

Every poppy piece is a chance for me to play with color and design. With this series I was playing around with different bouquets of colorful poppies in a variety of cups and vases.
