100 Garden & Floral Oil Paintings, Original Artwork by a Colorado Daily Painter, 32/100


"Double Poppies"
6" x 8" oil on panel
$100.00 + $10. s/h

This week my plein air group painted in a beautiful garden.  These poppies were growing in the middle of the vegetables.  The home owner said that they'd reseeded themselves and he had no idea what they were.  They looked to me like a hybrid of peonies and poppies as they had several rows of petals in the middle.
