"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.

"Blue Poppy 2 " oil on hardboard, 6x6"

The light through this flower is amazing.  I almost enjoy them more one at a time than as a "field" which is what they have at the Rhododendron Species Foundation.  Quite an accomplishment in the garden world.

"Blue Poppies 1" oil on hardboard, 6x6"

Ross and I were fortunate enough to be introduced to the Rhododendron Species Foundation in Federal Way, Wa. this year.  It was an amazing visit. Our good friend and over the top smart garden friend Greg Graves made it happen.  On that visit they had a "meadow" of the blue poppies that everyone is so desperate to grow and so often foiled.  Who knew there were so many shades of blue?!?

This is the second piece for a client.  This is his precious little Chatta out ruling the forest.  I'm waiting to let him assist me in a title.
