I’ve had these two pieces sitting around my studio, almost completed for the last month and a half.  Yesterday I finally did the finishing touches and ta-dah!  For my next collection of poppy and lanterns, I’m trying to go with more natural colors in the background and in some of the poppies.  I still want that pop of color, but have decided to scale it back a little.  I’m also loving this long format – these are 9″ x 15″.  Fun, fun.
