|Golden Pods, 10"x9", Acrylic on Paper, $250|
Every summer I grow several different kinds of poppies in my gardens. One of them, which I refer to as my ocean poppy, is dusty pink with a light grey center and thick, pale green foliage. It grows wonderful seed pods that develop a row of small windows under the rim to let the seeds out. I have done a bunch of paintings of these pods using different colors and techniques. This is one of my favorites. I love the rich golds and the organic shapes. I also had fun with the concept of incompleteness on this one, leaving two of the pods partially defined.
