I had the idea for this painting last summer. It took so long for me to start because I ended up growing my own poppies. After learning that you cannot buy poppy flowers, I was forced to start with the seeds. To my surprise, these plants grew really well indoors and I got some good references. Unfortunately, the flowers don't last long, especially once cut - they wilt almost immediately. I had to work from only photo references to complete the painting.
