One time, I decided I wanted to wake up to flowers every morning. To make this happen, I decided to paint poppies.

I went with the kids to walk the dog and discovered poppy flowers in the park. I took many photos to paint from but my oldest child’s photos were the best of the lot.

I picked a photo to work from and I was happy with the final painting. The painting is now in my living room and my bedroom wall is still bare. I was told it would be a pity to not share the painting with guests coming to our house.

Here is the first poppies painting I completed.
