The whole poppy
Poppies III 24"x24"x2.5" acrylic
This is a painting I did this winter in a series of seven paintings entitled Poppies. (1-7) They will be in our Colors of Summer Exhibition opening on June 16. So there they are all brazen and blazin. I never use these colors but somehow in mid February something snapped in my brain and I had enough of the drab winter. So flowers it has been and dreams of gardens. Something new for me to explore in paint. Which is good. I hate rehashing too much and well, it is good to move on. But this one is where it all started. And it became my blog header too!
The word for the day is ... public speaking ... ok, it is two words, I was asked to do it this morning for the Leadership Seacoast group of 25 movers and shakers of the area... I had to follow three amazing speakers - (powerhsouse performing arts people) . They were Executive Director Patrica Lynch from the Music Hall, Peter Hamlin from the Stone Church of Newmarket and Anthony Ejarquc from The Governor's Inn. Man. It was TOUGH. But thanks to all who said I did well. I am going back to my studio now for a little visual quiet and peace. phew. What was I doing there?
