Recently I was with a friend at a local garden shop and feel in love with this cute, little odd shaped white vase and I found two poppies that worked nicely in it - one green and the other one pink. I was thinking about the way I could use these in a painting while my friend was looking at a little owl decoration. She said, "you always see a painting while I see a decoration or gift." We laughed because that describes us pretty well. We "see" with different eyes. I loved the way this painting turned out. I painted it with a palette knife which brings a softness and all kinds of unexpected surprises with the paint. I have very neutral paint on my walls and these colors just work there. I hope this painting finds a home but it just might turn out to be mine.
