This painting was inspired by my forays into the city of Seattle to search out interesting subject matter for painting, I love Pioneer Square with it's dappled light on sunny, summer days and all the folks who enjoy the park including their four legged friends...=]

"White Cloud Poppies" plein air poppy painting by Robin Weiss

"White Cloud Poppies"  10x10 oil on panel   $600

The last in the Poppy series, this one shows a bit more of the green in the foliage and not so much of the orange tinge from all the wildfire smoke we had this summer.  I tried to transplant some of these amazing poppies in my own yard but turns out after some research they don't like to be moved so I will continue to enjoy them on the Knowles Studio grounds.  The poppies are all gone now but you can still see my representation of them on canvas by coming to Arts in the Woods!  Our yearly studio tour sponsored by the good folks at the Cultural Arts Foundation Northwest who fund great events like this one and also provide many scholarships and grants to artists in our area.  Hope to see you there!  =]
