How many paintings are there ?
This one is a surprise at the end how stunning it turns out. I did this one at a time when i did not have any canvas, and I just used plain white copy paper. Little did I know how much I was going to love it and wish I had done it on a great big canvas. I will repaint it someday on a 20x16. I just have so many I want to paint. Anyway, my poppies on paper.
