Acrylic painting of California golden poppy on a light purple background
  • California Sunlight - Original

    Like Georgia O’Keeffe’s jimson weed paintings, my poppy series began with an arrangement of several flowers (Golden Family), while subsequent pieces zoom in on single blossoms. But my single blossom paintings feature the same flower in progressing stages of magnification. As the poppy expanded on my canvas, new details and textures began to emerge as the lighting of each petal subtly shifted. Although they feature the same flower on a neutral background, the differences in scale and color gradients make each painting feel unique—whether you call it by its Latin name, “Eschscholzia californica”, or the one I like to use: California sunlight.
