Yes, I worked on the poppy. I didn't take a picture of today's work because I ran out of time. (My sweet husband appeared in the art room to remind me that it was time for lunch.) I marveled again at how complex flowers are, especially the sex organs. The petals are just window dressings around the business package. I think tomorrow I can finish it. This is taken from a photo by Bart De Laeter, a talented young photographer from the Netherlands. Check his work on Facebook.

To avoid tackling the huge poppy painting again I "played" with my paints. Crazy, loud, jarring colors on top of the patterned foil board made for a kindergarten look, "Frivolous Fun". I wanted to try using interference colors and mixing some (green with blue). Got that out of my system and re-worked a 2009 sunset, naming it "Sail". Now back to discipline and finishing the poppy painting tomorrow...maybe. Or maybe I will just put it in the closet for a year or two. Tune in tomorrow.
