California Poppies

6"x4" oil on raymar panel. Like I said in my last post, we put our poppies into two jars. This is the smaller of the two. I had to jump on it, because cut poppies last about two, maybe three days of opening in the morning and closing at night. Then, POOF, shriveled petals all over the floor. Grappling with all these flowers has been great, forcing me to use a healthy dose of abstraction. It was either abstraction or insanity, a choice I find as simple as, "Death or... Cake?"
