Heartsong Poppies

Sometimes paintings seem to hop onto the canvas, as if they were impatiently waiting for me to load the right colors on the brush so they could get on with being. I haven't painted a poppy still life in a while, but have been so inspired by the reds and oranges in my back yard garden the time seemed right! The spring tulips at the Dallas Arboretum were amazing this year, thanks to the chilly winter. I just wished the tulips bloomed all summer in Texas. Something about that 100 degree heat doesn't agree with them.
