"Blue Poppy 3" oil on hardboard, 6x6"
The habit of this flower seems to be in a downward, nodding like pose. I'm trying to get up the nerve to try them in our garden next season. Though it seems like a daunting challenge the paintings that would result could make it worth the angst.
I'm a painter living in Enumclaw, Washington. It's a small town in the foothills below Mt. Rainier. My sculptor husband and I share 3 studios, a foundry,6 cats, a one-of-a-kind, custom, cast bronze door and cabinet hardware company and 5 beautiful acres of land on which we host a July outdoor sculpture show. "A Painting a Day" seemed a little over the top. Just up my alley. Don't look for any consistency in subject matter. The one sure thing? color!
Paintings can be purchased on Ebay of directly from our studio.
