"PoppiesThree" original mixed medai paper/acrylic collage © Saundra Lane Galloway

 "Poppies Three"
MIXED MEDIA on MDF PANEL with 1 3/4" CRADLED SIDES

I have added two new venues for my work in the past few weeks.  One of them is a sweet little shop in Conifer called "Luna's Mandala" owned by Cynthia Weeks.  You can find one of a kind jewelry, art  and gifts by local artists at Luna's Mandala...among them this newest poppy piece.  These poppies are Iceland Poppies...a little smaller and a bit more delicate than your average poppies...yet pretty still!!  To purchase this piece visit Cynthia's shop in Conifer or contact me for other arrangements; however the sale will go through the store.  I've stained the cradle for this piece an English Oak which has a golden tone that compliments this painting nicely.

Things I have learned in the past few weeks.  1.  I am not blessed with unlimited energy  2.  I have not taken enough time to keep up with my regular life  3.  I still absolutely love art (OK...I already knew that one)  and 4.  Being organized makes all the difference!

So, for all of you who think I DO have this crazy energy...nope...I am finding that I am burning out more quickly...I am finding that I need to take some time to shop for food, clothing, gas, etc...(I've been really lax in all those areas of late...sigh)...I still have tons of ideas for my work which thrill me...however I have to organize myself better as I have added trying to get an art group to what was already a full life...I WANT to do this...I just need to realize that I'm just one...and I need to live and play AND work!  So, all this said as a bit of an explination as to why I haven't been posting every day...I think I will be able to pick up more with the art as some things get checked off the growing list...I hope you can be patient with me...and...as always...

HAPPY CREATING!!

Another lovely piece, Saundra. Congrats on adding another venue for your work. Methinks you have become quite the artist!! These poppies remind me of the small cloth poppies they used to give out for a donation on Poppy Day (I don't think they are cloth any longer, but they used to be when I was a kid).

I remember those! It's all good as long as it is fun! Thanks Autumn Leaves!
