I Heart Poppies


I'm continuing to swoosh my creativity around in the floral arena and quite enjoying it.  This is my first shot at painting poppies and am quite pleased with it actually.  You can find this lovely card here in my Etsy shop as well.

But as much as I'm loving tossing colorful petals to paper I will need to change direction the next few days in order to complete a special custom order of Easter cards.  I'm looking forward to the challenge, especially with the direction my art has taken since my father passed about 4 months ago.

On another note, I'm getting ready to face some significant changes in my life this week, so please do keep me in your thoughts, prayers, and such.  When the time is appropriate, I'll be sure to fill you in.

Until then...Happy Valentine's Day to all of my wonderful bloggie peeps.  :)
