“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!
