Poppy Power

This bright poppy was painted during a very hot summer! One of my illnesses has made me intolerant of extreme heat and cold. Happily, therefore, I can get a lot of painting done in the middle of summer and winter when I am housebound! This is an 18″ x 24″ gallery wrapped canvas. I was trying to match the bright color of the actual flower but I find I can never quite get the colors as good as the Creator Himself! I think this is just a cheerful painting and would brighten any room!

  1. Barbara, your paintings are so beautiful! Thank you for sharing your gift of art with the world! As a fiber/quilt artist, I appreciate the stories behind each piece, and how you honor the Lord even through your pain. May the Lord bless you richly and prosper the work of your hands.
    I do have two questions: Will you be adding prices to your web site? And, do you mind if I pin some of your paintings to my Art board on Pinterest? Of course I will include your name in each post.
    God is faithful and good. I’m excited about your new web site! ❤


    • Thank you, Janet, for your kind encouragement. It means a lot coming from you as I have seen some of your beautiful quilts posted! Yes, I would be very pleased to have you post any of my work on your Pinterest site!
      The purpose of this website is to give glory to the Lord by sharing the good things He has done for me; helping me to paint when I usually feel a bit like a slug. However, if someone is interested in having one they usually contact me by e-mail and we work something out!
