Original Watercolor
5" x 7"

In the spirit of actually painting, daily, I painted today.
There is something about poppies that I find enchanting. I am always amazed that these lovely red blooms, who look right at you with their dark centers, are held up by the thinnest of stems. Whenever a breeze passes by them, they sway just a little.
I call it the "poppy" dance.

These will be a series: Let's Be Poppies

They do look like crepe paper.

Its crazy how alien like the buds look just before they open up to this lovely crepe paper bloom.
