Tuscan Poppies

Tuscan Poppies
14 of 30
Oil 6" x 8"

Last May when we were in Tuscany, the poppies were in full bloom.  Sometimes when driving in the country side whole fields were carpeted in reds.  It was the perfect month to be there.  These are from a field of poppies right at the edge of the entrance to our B&B outside of Florence.
