Watercolor painting of two red poppies
I love synchronicity. I painted "Red Poppies" in 2018 from a reference photo I took in my garden. They brought to mind a sense of nurturing, one growing protected by another who's already "been there." I finished the painting on the eve of Mother's Day that year, so I happily introduced the painting on Facebook in honor of that day, celebrating all who nurture life in any form. And as I wrote this description for the website in 2020, I realized it was my mother's birthday, August 20th. So now the painting has the right name, "Bettye Jo's Poppies." It's thanks to her that all these thoughts could come to me and that I so love and appreciate flowers, color, the word "exquisite" and countless other things. Thanks, Mom.

To match the look of the original painting, choose Watercolor Fine Art Paper as the Medium. Note thaton your monitor or device it may appear bright white but is actually a natural white, unbleached cotton paper. If you choose to add a mat, it will also be a natural white color that blends well with the paper.
The original was painted on Arches hot press cotton rag paper using Winsor & Newton professional watercolors.
