Poppies - Part 1

So my little guy gets bored sometimes. And sometimes his boredom spills right on over to me. We were driving around and he had nothing better to do, so he started looking through the console thing between the front seats. He found a chip clip. He put it in my hair. He found a big hair clip from my long hair days. He put it in my hair. He found a microscopic teeny tiny clip. Yup, in my hair. And then he found a butterfly barrette. Snap! It was clipped holding a swirl of hair. The kid was getting creative. And all I could think about was that I totally had it coming. Karma had caught up with me. I very clearly remember being bored one day as a child, taking a clothespin over to my sleeping grandfather, and clipping it on his nose. He woke up with a HUGE snort.

I started a new painting. Here are the first few stages.

I started with a blue background.

I used red to start laying in some of the color/shape.

I went in with a darker color in darker areas.

I began adding some basic color and shape.
Now you can tell I'm doing flowers in a vase.
