Surrounded - Red Poppy Painting by Texas Flower Artist Nancy Medina

Surrounded - Red Poppies
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Surrounded is one of a few new poppies taking shape here as flowers bloom and Dove chocolate rapidly vanishes in Flower Mound Studio. I am fairly certain that painting particular colors helps me keep the events in my life in perspective and I choose them according to what moods or emotions have filled my day. This was definitely one of those days when I needed to get that color out there and let it jump and shout a bit. Shouting with color can be good for the soul!

A plethora of poppies in the studio!

Poppies I love both in reality and as painting. This is a very beautiful rendition of poppies.
