One more for spring

“3 Crimson Poppies”  ©Jill Rosoff 2009, 10″ x 4″, SOLD

Its no secret I do a lot of paintings of poppies, mostly Icelands.  They’re so amazingly bold in color and delicate in structure, it’s a lovely juxtaposition.  I had this stray piece of paper  leftover from a piece I tore up for a commission, which just meant an opportunity to indulge a little, and voila.  I have done more and more of these tall, narrow paintings that are 12″ tall, but this piece of paper was just 10″, and I was happy to find out that the proportion still worked for the style of the composition.  There’s still that long, lanky grace.

Happy summer solstice!

    The shape of the canvas and sensitivity of colors makes this piece presentable in various rooms of the house.
