Triple Two Poppies

A second 10 x 10 oil painting of the red poppies common in southern France. The third panel needed a bit more work and so it is still wet. Maybe next week?

West Highland Way 2

Another small acrylic piece on textured wood cradle. 6 x 6 and the painting wraps around the edges so no frame is required.

West Highland Way I

The West Highland Way is a long distance walk in Scotland (about 100 miles) and it hits the lowlands to the highlands. Despite days of grey skies and copious amounts of rain, there is an abundance of local colour. I prepared and textured a 6 x 6 wood cradle and did this piece in acrylic. The painting wraps around the sides.

Triple One

The title reflects that this is one of three paintings done from a single wide angle photo. Poppies are so striking, and yet single varieties have few individual petals. This variety is a common roadside wildflower in southern France. I've been somewhat distracted from my blog but have been painting and will be posting more for the coming week. This piece (10 x 10) is oil on deep canvas and the painting wraps around the sides.
