Wild Poppies by karincharlotte Wild Poppies by karincharlotte
Poppies Acrylics 60 cm x 60 cm SOLD

Funny thing about this painting is that I did not think too much of it. It had so many layers. One day I was just adding another layer, thinking of poppies...I used a palette knife to apply some left over paints, not really knowing what I was doing. Lucky my husband came in one day and saw it . He was surprised he hadn't noticed it before and asked if I was putting it in the exhibition. I didn't really think it was good, but Karl thought it was "lovely" and I should put it in.
The day we were hanging the paintings I almost took it home again, figuring it just wasn't good enough, compared to the other work there. It turned out , I could have sold that one many times...so many people like it. Go figure!

Texture is great, especially on flowers. Worth doing again I think. :hug:

I think exuberant is a great word to describe it - so many people have said they love it because it's happy. :D
