Flowers in oil, on collaged background

In the studio this past weekend I was busy doing all kinds of projects, this was one of them.  A 12 x 12" pattern collage with a sweet purple oil painting of a poppy that I used to grow on my back deck before I moved from TN. I knew one day I would paint those flowers ...
