A Return To Flowers

I took a break from painting images from Greece to capture the uniqueness of the poppy in watercolors.

Intrigued by the curves, shapes, and variations of color, I found myself transported in time as I painted. Interestingly enough I just finished reading a section from Thomas Moores' book, The Dark Nights of the Soul, where he talks about this phenomenon of loosing all sense of time when you are wrapped up in something which you enjoy. I could definitely relate!

Instead of calling this watercolor painting "Poppy", I will call it "Somewhere in Time".
