"Poppy Study" plein air, poppy painting by Robin Weiss

Poppy Study 8x8 oil   Sold

Leigh has these poppies growing in her "White" garden....Some people call them "Fried Egg Poppies" but I researched them and found that they are native to Southern California into Mexico. The formal name is Matilija Poppy.  Been wanting to paint them for years and finally got around to it with a series of paintings.This is the first done on a windy day when the crepe paper white blossoms were blowing about and dancing in the wind.
