Everything’s Popping Up Poppies

You’ve probably heard, “Everything’s Coming up Roses.”

Well – I’m in a poppy state of mind these past few days, so after painting this bunch of very loose impressionistic poppies after dinner last night, I decided to name it “Everything’s Popping up Poppies!”

I even put this 8 x 10 painting in a frame I had and hung it on the wall to see what it would look like.  First time ever….

I have been inspired by various styles and artists while perusing Pinterest and YouTube and all of my amazing WordPress artist friends and blog followers, so I decided to just “let it go,”  and I think this might be my personal favorite so far.

In a few days, it will be one full year since I painted my very first watercolor painting ever (which you can view here).  What a fun journey this has been so far.  I have learned so much and have sooooo much more to learn.  I now understand why many artists say it is a life-long journey to accomplish or develop a style and master a medium!

I am enjoying the journey…

and cherishing the brushstrokes and paint puddles and splashes…

the artistic moments… at life in between.

Cheers & Hugs,
Jodi

  1. Jodi, I’m so glad you joined the art journey and our paths have crossed. Your poppies sing! Remember don’t worry about your style, you already have one, just paint! I’m so happy for you and your framed poppies are so delightful.

  2. Jodi, I love this painting! I was thinking about this one as I was trying some in WC Saturday night – did this take one layer, or more than one? Do you remember? I’d love to come up with my own bright and free poppies. I’ve painted them before, but I really love your version here! 💜
