Watercolor poppy

Watercolor poppy LRThe journey this small watercolor postcard has enjoyed!

I don’t mean it’s left my confines, but as a very small work, I have misplaced it on several occasions. I love this little painting and in general love painting poppies. I used India Ink and watercolor to create the stark contrast between the delicate, paper-thin blossom and the stark black seed center.

Though this original is tiny, as a print it packs a giant graphic punch as in this mockup of what it might look like as living room decor:

A coupla florals

Sunflower and Bromelaid (not necessarily in that order) were the subjects for these two floral paintings I did recently. As a self-taught artist, I’ve always been advised to pick a subject.  I love painting citiscapes, but if there’s one subject I find the most flow in creating, it’s big, bold, beautiful blossoms!

Enjoy these two?  Click the respective link to be taken to the site selling prints, canvas, throw pillows, notecards, tote bags, heck, even duvet covers of these and some of the other images I’ve created over the years.
