Poppies and Rocks

"Poppy Duo"

"Paper Poppies"

"Crock Poppies"

"Poppy Trio"
My last day with my parents and I'm still snooping! We are off to the airport in a few hours, so I wanted to share a series I did for my parents of poppies. They were completed during a span of a year if I remember correctly. "Poppy Duo" is acrylic on canvas, Next we have my version of collage on a board "Paper Poppies", third down is what I call "Crock Poppies" on stretched canvas and coming last is the "Poppy Trio", also on stretched canvas. Ha, it's 5 a.m.ish and I'm cracking myself up naming these. Gotta say "Crock Poppies" is making me laugh the hardest! Now I'm in the mood to do poppies when I get home...Yipee...Some of the photos have a bit of glare. That is due to the fact that these paintings were sealed. I usually photograph my work before it has that shiny coat on it. This photo for sharing is of some mountain rocks with what I call a trickle stream running down. Last year when my hubby (who I miss like crazy) and I went on a little mini vacationfor a couple of days. Our goal was to do it on one tank of gas, so we made the loop from home to the Royal Gorge and back. This picture was taken somewhere along that loop! The stream running down from them pooled at the bottom and we took our shoes off and played in the water. I remember the bottom was pure sand. It was AWESOME!
I KNOW the values are pretty similar...that will be the challenge for any of you who may choose to take this one and run with it! E-mail me your finished pieces and I PROMISE I'll try to get them posted as soon as I get them!

I can't wait to get home to start painting again. But, I have to admit I'm a bit sad to leave my parents...Oh the dilemas!! I have enjoyed seeing artwork from the ones who did it off of my photos...I think I will continue doing that from time to time. I highly recommend it. Something sort of exciting and, I don't know...heady about seeing your photo from someone else's view!

Have an awesome day!

I had to look at them all more closely--love the layered papers on the collage!

You are so lucky to live within a tank of gas of that lovely stream!
