Sunday Sketches

What is it about the poppy flower that make you fall in love?

Is it their juicy color? The crepe like petals? Their wonderful centers full of invite for bees and fascination? Or, is it the bulbous pod with wagon wheel like top knot?

I cannot get enough of them! Many varieties are scattered throughout my garden, and have been subject matter for several paintings.

This red one became so tall that when the wind and rains came it continued to bloom on the ground. I thought this made for a great composition. What do you think?
