LA rains inspire my newest piece: Poppy Poppies

I bought my rain boots a couple of years ago - on sale - for use on a set I was working on that involved a lot of water and mud.

Living in Los Angeles, I rarely get a chance to wear them.  This January the rains came and the boots were on my feet for a week straight.  One morning I was looking down thinking how cute they were.  I started sketching simple flowers.  I started with Tulips and somehow segued into Poppies.  The end result ...

I present Poppy Poppies.  12"x12" panels with a light grey background and vibrant flowers outlined in black.  This will also be available on paper (and possibly in pillows!)
