Red Poppies

Red Poppies
Original 24" x 36" x 0.75" painting
Golden, Liquitex, Atelier acrylics on gallery-wrapped canvas

Today was a busy day working on commissions and new compositions, so I've pulled one from the archive of recent works for today's post. I'm pleased to say that Red Poppies lasted about 24 hours on my sales venues before it was purchased back in January. I know that it brought some joy to the patron who bought it, and hopefully got them out of their winter doldrums.

Tip of the Day
Another tax-related bit for today: bear in mind that the IRS only allows you to deduct the cost of materials for any art you donate to a charitable organization.

Quote of the Day
"At the museum a troubled woman destroys a sand painting meticulously created over days by Tibetan monks. The monks are not disturbed. The work is a meditation. They simply begin again." --Susan Griffin
