It's been a busy week in Flower Mound Studio - Poppy Days is drying on the easel, another from my mountain aspen series. I'm also making progress on a four-foot wide flowerscape for a client in Montreal, Canada, and enjoying filling up such a large canvas with color! A bit of lilac to frame the flowers has helped pull this large composition into a more cohesive design, and next I'll be adding some orange gerberas and more white daisies. This is such an exciting shape, I think the end result is going to be dramatic and fun!

Love the misty distant mountains and gorgeous trees in the distance, Nancy. They are a perfect backdrop for these gorgeous poppies! And that large painting is going to be so stunning (it already is!)!!

Le coquelicots sont des fleurs très aimées en Normandie. Elles étaient très présentes lors du débarquement des troupes alliées le 6 juin 1944 à tel point qu'elles en sont devenues l'un des symboles présents sur les tombes des vétérans. Les Anglais, en particulier, l'arborent à la boutonnière.
De nombreux artistes les représentent et je les utilise moi-même en land art.
Que dire de tes composition sinon qu'elles m'enchantent toujours autant.
Belle journée.

Thank you Sally and Julia- I wish you could have seen these poppies, they were the size of dinnerplates in person!

Roger, Merci pour la note sur mon blog et la belle histoire sur l'importance de coquelicots en Grande-Bretagne et en Europe. J'aimerais voir votre art de pavot un jour! Cordiales salutations cher ami de tout l'océan!
