Red Poppy 2, ©Jill Rosoff 2010, 11 3/4″ x 6″, SOLD
I’ve missed blogging for awhile, I’ve been preparing entries for two juried shows. So I thought this time I’d post one of the pieces I just completed for these entries. This piece is a little larger than I typically post here, but what the heck, it’s been awhile. Click on the image to see it larger, the details in this piece will show better.
I’m doing more and more of these patterned pieces lately. They take a little more time to complete, what with all the textures and layers of color. I started doing these pieces with the very busy texture work in the early 90′s, they came about as I studied iceland poppy beds and noticed all of the textures, in the grain of the soil, in the clumps of leaves of each little plant, and what they look like compared to each other.
