My garden in Victoria was always a surprise. Every spring there was something new that popped out. Last summer when I arrived home from Spain, I discovered my garden covered in pink poppies. There must of been hundreds of them. They ranged in size from very tiny to huge blossoms. It was a great way to be welcomed back to reality.
This painting was done as a demonstration for the Arbutus Ridge Art Club in Cobble Hill, BC. It was a wonderful group of people and I really enjoyed painting for all of them.
