“Early this spring, while at an outdoor garden store, I spotted an oriental poppy that matched the color of one I painted 20 years ago after a trip to Monet’s garden in Giverny, France. I bought this poppy plant, established it in my garden behind my art studio, and the plant grew large and took over one end of a garden bed. Finally, the large buds appeared and I waited in anticipation to see the blooms. Once they came, they did not disappoint.
The flowers were large and fushia colored with dark magenta centers, and with a mound of stamens laden with gold pollen. The bees loved the flowers. A cloud of the buzzing insects visited the large pink blooms every day. I painted the poppy in the garden and then worked on it further in my studio.” – mh
