A Thing for Poppies

16x16 Acrylic on cradled panel
A recent submission to the 10th Annual Juried Exhibition held at the Marianne van Silfhout Gallery at St Lawrence College, Brockville, ON.

Lots of painting has been happening, just not a lot of uploading. I've been on a poppy kick when it comes to flowers. Inspiration has come from stunning specimens growing in my neighbourhood. Wildflowers, grasses, poppies...they make me feel creative just by looking.
