Poppies for Jazz

I just finished a painting for my daughter.  She is returning to college in Chicago in a few weeks, and will be sharing an apartment instead of living in the dorms.  She wanted a painting of poppies to remind her of home in sunny California.  So… “Poppies for Jazz” it is!

I painted a good portion of the piece at the Montrose Art Walk in July.  I always like to work on a painting in my booth when I do art fairs.

Here is my progress at the art fair…

Then it sat on my easel in the studio for a few weeks while I finished up my July art workshops.

Here is another look at the finished painting.  I love it so much I am making prints of it to sell at my next art walk in September.

So glad I had time to paint today!  🙂

Have a wonderful, creative day, Janell
