Cosmic Orange III

The poppies have been magnificent this summer!  I have been out and about snapping reference photos of some gorgeous specimens, and then rushing home to capture their essence on canvas.  One thing is for sure, poppies don't last very long once they bloom, and if there is heavy rain and wind in the forecast, you had better get out and enjoy their beauty...  because you can almost be guaranteed that most of the petals will be ruined by the storm...

Their fleeting beauty makes them even more special... Cosmic Orange III.
