New Poppies

Poppy Joy
12 x 11 inches

Poppy Shadows
11 x 10 inches

Here are a couple of my new poppy paintings.  I have been having fun with textures and what I call ghost poppies.  The backgrounds of both of these paintings were created first.  The second, Poppy Shadows, uses a technique called color sanding into damp paint.  Enjoy!
