"Dance of the Poppy" - 6" x 6" - Oil on Canvas
$75 Unframed
Last week or perhaps the week before, I was driving on Beach Drive down by the end of St. Charles Street and I spied the most beautiful plant (a bush or tree) of white poppies. They were absolutely stunning. So, I stopped the car and walked back to take some photos. Just then the lady that lived in the house returned home and gave me permission to go down her driveway and take pictures of them so that I could get some better shots. Thank you Kristen!!!
I really liked the movement in this particular blossom.
An aside. . . .used a Windsor & Newton canvas.  The weave is quite coarse (as you can see from the image).  I don't think that I will purchase them again.
