Yesterday I took my stuff out to my garden and gave poppies a second and third try. It was a beautiful day and I think these turned out way better than the first time . So you can imagine what that looked like. I was talking to my sister on the phone the whole time I painted the first one. I think it kept me from thinking about what I was doing and the painting went great. That's always the best, when it's just the paint, the color and the image and you don't think about anything else.
I have a lot of flowers blooming now so maybe I will try daisies or peonies . But I don't want to get stuck in a flower rut.
