A sunny poppy garden

I’ve finished up my first round of poppy paintings. Included are plenty of actual¬†poppy seeds. I kept things relatively simple (no text)¬†to keep focus on the poppies.

(purple poppy print available here)

For all three paintings, I used tissue paper to create the flowers and Mary Beth’s awesome stencils to add texture in the background.

Our live flowers have had plenty of April showers for blooming purposes. Now I’m ready for a little sun. please.


  1. June,this texture is amazing!!!! Beautiful spring poppy garden art!
    Concerning the sun, we had pretty much all April sun and we are waiting for some rain…well not really me, but the people who garden do. Even without the rain we have a wonderful spring this year!

    Smiles, Anke ;)

  2. I love these. They are absolutely beautiful and the subtle use of the stencil is very cool.

  3. Hey Ms Daley,
    How’s your spring going. It’s a crazy woman from your past. I love your poppy art and I’m order one for my sister’s birthday in July. I think of you every day when I see my “wear my cape around my waist” piece.
