Matilija Poppy, 7x5 oil painting on linen panel

Matilija Poppy
7x5 oil painting on linen panel

Recently I visited several of the California missions, and I found some beautiful Matilija poppies growing in the garden at Mission La Purisima, in Lompoc, CA.  I love to watch these large poppies floating in the breeze, and their graceful petals look like angel wings.  This painting is from a photo I took on that trip, and it's available on Daily Paintworks at http://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/287112.
