Poppies in the Mountains 5x7 pastel

'Poppy Surprise' 5x7 pastel
Sometimes you find beauty where you least expect it. This scene is from the road to my parent's home in the North Carolina mountains. Last summer while visiting them, I went for an early morning walk. I never expected to come across this little patch of poppies on the side of a busy highway. Actually I had my dad throw wildflower seed all along their driveway so I am hopeful for even more wildflowers next summer!

Hi Anita,
Nice to meet you! Thanks for writing. I am so glad you enjoy my blog and work. I had a visit to your blog and I just love you water lilies. I have a fascination with them. I hope to get back to my 100 variation challenge to finish...I'll have to try the olive oil!
Thanks again for writing.
Karen
