POPPIES IN THE SUN By Cecelia Lyden

I spied my neighbors' poppies while off to run errands. I couldn't wait to get back to set up my easel. There was a threat of rain, and I wanted to capture this glorious burst of color before the rain knocked off the petals and beat the flowers into the ground. I painted for three hours in the hot sun, finished the painting, cleaned up and then the rains came.

Glad you got out to paint these before the rain beat them down. Such a gorgeous flower!
