art every day- poppies

I felt poppies were in order for the day.
The first one is just colored pencils.
The second one is watercolors, construction paper, and marker.
I included the photo I used for inspiration. I took it a couple of years ago at Glen Eyrie. Nothing I create will ever rival what God made. The ultimate artist!


  1. Poppies make me think of the little paper poppies veterans sell..... When my daughter was in school her class had to come up with 'slogans' for the veteran's red poppies sale. We came up with a good one, but they couldn't use it. We drew the poppy and wrote, 'This bud's for you.'
    So true - so many implications. But sadly, the slogan was already taken.
    Your pictures are great!

  2. I really love the first one. It is simplistic, but not simple. Thank you so much for sharing all of this with us.

  3. Love the way you're trying so many different things!! Love the poppies.


I love to hear your thoughts!
