I was particularly drawn to this peaceful scene with the calm waters in the distance and the happy clouds drifting by overhead. The explosion of crimson from the poppies was so vibrant and beautiful that I had to capture the moment. Working with palette knife and thick oil paint, this painting is loaded with texture, color and movement. I hope you, too, can feel a sense of peace and joy when you gaze into this landscape.
