Tall Poppy

Tall and skinny poppy..this is another
older painting. I used to let the pigments
flow more randomly...now it seems I try to control
them a little more. You almost don't know what's
going to come out of letting various colors mingle
on the paper...some of the time it's mud though..I am
a little borderline on this one. But experience teaches
us which pigments play well together and which ones
need to be separated on the playground!

Beautiful--I love poppy paintings, yours especially. The background is wonderful too.

I love this, too--and the long composition suits it beautifully.
