Poppies Painting Series

“Impression of Poppies” | Encaustic on Paper on Board, cradled | 12″ x 12″ | © 2007 Marilyn Fenn -- This series was inspired by a split-second view I had of poppies growing in a field in Afghanistan -- it just showed a couple of pods on stems. I took it from there. As with all my encaustic paintings, there is a depth of beauty to these that has to be seen in person to be appreciated.

I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true – hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t do it.
