Poppy Parade is a new work in reds drying on the easel in Flower Mound Studio tonight. I thought you might like to meet a real Poppy, my grandpa. Poppy adored animals and his house was always filled with a menagerie of critters, squirrels, wounded animals he was nursing back to health, and the birds from the back yard who he tamed. The last time I saw my Poppy he was wearing this funny orange hat and wearing a sweatshirt, and had flown in from St. Louis to visit my family on the farm and help dad put up a fence. He loved animals, and he loved people, too, and never met a stranger. They don't make them like Poppy anymore.

My Grandpa, Poppy
