Pink Poppies 9x9 acrylic

'Pink Poppies' 9x9 acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas
I have been working on some acrylic paintings the past few days. It feels strange to use a brush and mix colors but with each painting it is getting more familiar. I just need to make time for practice. This one is on gallery wrapped canvas. I do like the idea that I don't need to fuss with frames and glass but pastels truly do make it worth the fuss. To me there is nothing more beautiful than pastel!
