Well as I indicated in my last post, I like to branch out and stretch my creativity and so with this photo taken a few years ago in Italy I decided that a field of poppies would be a great accent in Jordan's new bedroom. This time I supplemented those first oil paints that I had purchased with some larger tubes, and a little better quality. With the information that I had gleaned from Iris Scott's Book I set to work to paint these rich red poppies. You will notice how my background started out yellow. I guess that's the beauty of creating your own work. It is exactly that, your own, and you can change your mind, and the colour, any time you like.
A work in progress.
The finished product.
And hanging in Jordan's redone bedroom. It looks awesome with his red bedspread. See it in the blog post Dresser makeover.
