Every year when the Poppies Bloom I grab my camera to take yet a few more Poppy photos. I would like to attempt a series of paintings in different mediums to capture the gorgeous display of red poppies. I love how the light dances on the petals of the poppies as they move in the breeze. I chose a palette knife as i was trying to capture a very loose feel of the poppies and somewhat impressionistic. Bold colors, working with complimentary colors, the warm and cooler color
Great Horned Owl was created this year , 2015. It is an 8 x 10 acrylic painting on wrap around canvas. The steely gaze is what is most compelling in this painting and the bold use of color.The Blue green of the background complements so well the earthy and warm color of the Owl feathers.
