June Poppies, 16x20 oils on board.

Well this is a rework of one of my earlier plein air pieces. Sometimes I go back in and just change everything! This was the piece titled "Clover Fields" from a couple weeks back. On this one I decided to go with some brighter more dramatic wildflowers for the foreground. I also redid the trees, changing the overall shapes and adding more detail.

I like that you are not a slave to what is "there" --and can change things for the sake of the painting!

What a beautiful and joyous painting! The light, the color, the poppies ... The poppies actually remind me of Umbria, which always ups the joy quotient for me!
Inspiring, thank you!

I love poppies too! Seems like they are always sprouting up in my paintings : )
