“Poppy Passion” 36×36 Oil on Canvas (Natural Earth Pigments with Walnut Oil)
A work of emergence, as my first full floral oil painting utilizing a new process with Natural Earth Pigments with Walnut Oil. The natural elements, a more organic form of my favorite part of painting, in mixing my own colors. This combined with my healing phase from early stage breast cancer, I got to describe my emergence from this challenge through expressing the one of the glorious coral poppies from Roche Harbor Resort’s Gardens on San Juan Island.
Hand stretched on gallery thick (1 3/4″ ) canvas, with painted sides with the purple tone from the Poppy’s center tendrils.
