Upon reflection, I realize it's probably no surprise that I was inspired by this poem; spring is in the air and the season of the poppy is approaching. And thus it was, after my failed autumn-inspired piece, that I started work on Summer's Kiss, my new piece for our FANE exhibition, Poetic Fragments. Aside having to be inspired by a line (or two) of poetry, our artwork also had to be created of more than one part and fit into a 14" square, adhered to an 18" square canvas. My individual poppies certainly meet that requirement, but I took it a step further and made four separate background pieces. I was in full watercolor crayon mode and all the fabrics for the piece were created using the crayons.
