I hadn’t intended to paint a poppy today, chiefly because I didn’t know it was there, hiding at the back of a border in the garden. In weather such as we are having at the moment I know it is unlikely to be there long before its petals drop. I think it is an Oriental poppy, but how it came to be where it is, I don’t know. However it got there, it turned out to be a survivor, fighting its way up through the other more established plants, pushing its head up with a determination to be seen. It warmed my day.

How beautiful, it has also warmed my day too. Here in cold, locked down Melbourne, Australia.
Thanks Barbara, I hope you are soon out of lock down. Love your cards by the way.

Thanks Graham, I fear it will be a while, at least another 5 weeks. I don’t make cards any longer, only when the mood takes me. I have been trying to hone my drawing and painting skills over the past several years. Some progress has been made I’m pleased to say, but most of all I just love and enjoy drawing and painting.
