‘Rubies and Emeralds’ acrylic 24″ × 36″ $3,000.00

This painting came from the gorgeous poppies that came up in my flower bed this spring. I planted a mixed packet of flower seeds by my front door courtyard area. These brilliant red poppies came up among a tangled mass of green. When the buds poked their heads up through the masses they reminded me of green emeralds. The ruby red flower blossoms were dazzling in the sunlight! The combination of the two together looked like rubies and emeralds. When the sun hit the blossoms and buds they sparkled like jewels in a green velvet box. These giant red poppies looked like they were rubies that were on fire. The colors in the painting are intense so that you can feel the way they looked to me on that warm spring morning. Poppies are my favorite flowers. I wanted to show you the magic I saw in these delicate petals and fragile stems with giant red blossoms.

  1. Terry,
    Thank you for your comment. As you know poppies are my favorite flowers! Art USA in Westlake, is going to make a limited edition of giclees for “Rubies and Emeralds”. They will be available at Art USA before Christmas. There will also be giclees available there for “Poppy Fields”. “Poppy Fields” is the painting that I did from the wonderful photograph you took on the way to Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.
