I have a Creative Tuesday dilemma ~ The theme is "Poppies" which I dearly love, but I wrote down that the due date was August 26, not today!! I've been out of watercolor paper and badly need some tubes of paint and planned to make a trip to Aaron Brothers this week and have my poppy painting ready for CT. However this morning I see all the artist have their poppies up, and I check the date..and yep!!! It's today. So instead of a new painting ~ I will share some painting I've done in the past of poppies. This first one is done on hot press paper and give a really different look that my normal watercolors. Rather a velvet touch.
This is one of my note cards, with two simple poppies growing out behind a rock.
And last, the painting hanging on the wall behind my desk is Iris and Poppies that I painting when my mother was in her last days battling cancer in 1991. She slept a lot, so while she slept, I painting. This was done in her memory and I always have it hanging in my home. I found some silk flowers that look like the painting and like the combination of the two.
Sorry I don't have a "Fresh Painting" for today, but will try to be ready for our next theme. Thanks MMm.... I know you had me in mind with this theme, and I'm sorry to disappoint you.
