map poppies

this is LARGE... three feet square .... i've been working on it for weeks now ... after each phase i fretted about what was next ... somehow on big canvases you just don't want to go the wrong way ... i have no problem painting over small canvases, but it seems a bigger deal to ditch an idea on such a humongo space ..... so ... slow and steady .... but just this week i made the flower decision ....yesterday i painted a map of illionois yellow .... and made the petals ... and glued them down ... today i did the details and shading .... some of the coloring is the map variation .... like that's a great lake on the center petal of the far right flower ....

 

three foot square stretched canvas, vintage papers, textured paper, glazes, acrylics

 

available for sale ...NOPE ... sold it ... rah!
