POPPIES, 5X7, ORIGINAL OIL, SOLD




Can you think of anything better that a field of poppies? They are one of my favorite flowers. One of my favorite things about North Carolina are the wildflower fields you find planted next to the roads there. These are from the Bryson City area, off the Smokey Mountain Expressway.

Breathtaking! Just had to give it a try.
If you are wondering why two photos. The first one had too much glare and really bothered me, so I tried to post another. Now it seems there is no way to get rid of the glaring photo!
Also, is anyone having trouble with the "following" feature? I have over 100 blogs that I "follow" but it seems I only get updates on about 20. This morning I spent several hours going through my list and checking out blogs that I have not heard from in some time. It kind of defeats the purpose of "following" when you don't get updates!

You did a beautiful job painting these poppies Carol! I like your composition and the green and orange color combination is very exciting to look at. Nice brushwork too!

Beautiful poppies Carol, you have really captured them in such soft, beautiful light.
I've noticed bugs throughout blogger on the follow feature, so I think it is something they are working on (hopefully!).

I love poppies too - especially those compelling buds!

Now you've got me wondering about the "follow" feature. I have never gotten an update from any blog I have signed up to "follow". I was expecting an email, kind of like the feedburner subscriptions. When nothing happened, I decided it just must be a way to show support and possibly be linked in some mysterious, cyber way. How do your updates show up?? (I mean the ones that do show up?) Hmmmmmmmmmm....

I just love your paintings of flowers so much. I know how difficult they are as I am trying to draw them in my sketch book. They are just beautiful.

Love the depth you have acheived in this one Carol. And yes - could there be any flower as lovely as poppies?
