A series in progress.... The top image is how it starts. A color on the whole canvas. The dark punctuation for composition. Then colors added. The bottom photo is taken on my front porch.... paintings still need "thinking" and more details in the poppy centers, but the direction so far is comfortable. Maybe these will be fabric? wall paper? prints? We shall see. And yes, it does have to be bold... I don't think my brush knows another way :-).
