a trio of bright poppies 20

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, June 16, 2016 @ 1:16 AM | , ,

Hi there! I finally did it! I pulled the trigger and painted on a large canvas for my home :) I painted the trio of bright poppies on a 24" x 24" canvas inspired by a lesson in The Beauty of Oil Painting book by Gary Jenkins.
I reworked each poppies several times before moving on. I can step back and see where I need improvements but for now, I'm going to hang this one proudly on a wall in my home :)



I'm joining along with the Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
