Flowers

Flowers are so beautiful. A gift of nature that is fleeting and perfect. I love to paint them and each is unique. I especially love to paint poppies, as they come in so many strong colors and have perfect strong value contrast with the black centers. I love how their petals flop around in the wind as they dance on their long slender stems.  Each is unique as no two poppies are the same.

Nearly all of the Poppy paintings were in several local one-woman gallery shows featuring them as a collection.

I’ve been teaching classes locally on watercolor painting of flowers and some of the paintings were done as demonstrations for the class.
