   This post is back tracking a bit. I forgot about this painting because I hung it up into the spare bedroom and forgot to blog about it. 
   When I came home from my trips, to Red Deer for the figure painting open studio and a beautiful vacation, I came home to find a rage of poppies popping up in front of my house. I thought that they were duds when I left at the end of July but as they were completely ignored they flourished into a sea of overwhelming color. So I picked a poppy and an empty bottle and created a still life in the studio and started painting away. I really wanted to paint a still life after painting the figure so vigorously.
