TREE WITH POPPIES



I really like how warm this tree is.  The red colors were super fun to work with!  The poppies, inspired by my friend Beth, turned out better than I had hoped.  I'm still learning how to use collage elements....it's tricky for me.  I love the dimension it ads!! 

What art elements are you guys drawn to but find really tricky?

Happy Paint Party Friday and Sunday Sketches!!

I love your tree and those poppies are brilliant. Can't wait to see where the experiment with collage takes you. Beautiful, with all those circular shapes and elements.

Almost all elements feel tricky to me sometime. I have a hard time envisioning what process I need to use to get the result I want. It's wonderful seeing your work and how free and beautiful it is. Thanks for sharing this warm gorgeous work.

Oh, that tree is wonderful, and I love all the red in there. Your collaged poppies work really well!

Love, love, love this!!! I have been on a poppy painting kick this past week as I want to hang them in my kitchen. I think just painting them was tricky so I can't imagine how hard it must have been to do them in mixed media but you did a great job!

The collage elements added a nice forefront, I like the knobby parts of the tree.
