Painted Poppies first in the open air and sunshine, and then in the studio.
8×10” and 6×8” acrylic on canvas
I’m thinking of sunshine and flowers, while our first blizzard hits. Yesterday our yard was a healthy green. Today it wears a blanket of snow, but it’s pretty too.
The first image is the under painting, and the second is the finished work. 8″x10″ acrylic on canvas board.
Our local Art Center http://brookingsartscouncil.org/home hosts an exhibit to raise funds by asking local artists to create up to 4 of 6×6″ works of art of any media. Patrons buy as many chances for a drawing as they like. At the time of the sale, they draw tickets, and each person comes up as their ticket is drawn, and has 30 seconds to pick a painting. The paintings are only signed on the back, so you have to pick by taste, instead of by name.
Here are two paintings I picked out at the last sale, painted by my friends. I can recognize their work, but I picked them because I liked the pictures.

This palette knife painting represents a rose from memory. In the BEFORE version I was satisfied with the composition, but not the colors I don’t know why I use the dull brown. Anyway, I looked at it today by chance, and thought I want to fix this. The texture has a bit different effect covering over the top of existing texture but I’m glad I went for it! I may try this again from scratch sometime.
