A Week of Poppies IV

For the Poppy Weekend I show you a piece fresh from my pink studio, made this morning. It’ s been quite rainy around here lately and for the collage I combined this rainy feeling with popping poppies. This kind of collage is the recent lesson in Alena Hennessy’s painting course A Year of Painting II, where we are encouraged to make our own collage papers with inks and pens. I still had some older ink paintings on watercolour paper lying around in the studio, so I just cut up these.

What about a little sun on Sunday now? I don’t know about the weather, but I know that I’ll have one more poppy surprise tomorrow.
