Floral Painting of a Poppy, Bedazzle, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

16x20 oil on canvas

The garden centres have many varieties of poppy plants for sale in almost any color you can imagine.  I love to go there early in the morning to snap a few reference photos.

Strong sunlight filtered through this deep orange/red poppy's silky petals.  The morning light showed all the beautiful folds, wrinkles and lines on her delicate face.  Character lines... beauty marks.
