I love poppies and I tried to paint them last year. They got painted over that time, so they resurfaced a couple of days ago.

I lived in California for several years and didn’t pay that much attention to the orange flowers in the sunshine. I saw some in gardens over the years including the blue poppies and was so excited! I love blue flowers and blue poppies are my favorite. I will have to look at the plant nursery again this year or order some.

In the meantime I started a few red ones on this canvas. I don’t like the flat way they look so I already carved into them a little and then am going to add some paper on the petals. The side has been crackled which I love. The one-step crackle I found again at Joann’s. I couldn’t remember where I got it and I guess that’s where. It’s not even in with the other craft paints or antiquing stuff it’s a separate package up top on the rack.
