Poppies are all oil on self framed stretched canvas. The paintings measure 24" x 30" and were completed in 2010.

I painted the red Poppy in a class I taught. One of my students mentioned that the painting would look good as a triptych so I did two more in different colors. Everyone seems to like the red one because I sold it. Painting flowers can be fun because flower petals often take on a variety of shapes and shades.

I didn't get too much painting done in 2010 because I've been learning Quick Books on the job for the last seven months. I finally got all of the inventory and sales posted for two companies for the last six month of 2010. I'm not sure how we're going to deal with the first six months but, as the accountant tells me, "It should be interesting."

As intuitive as the software might be it is still not easy when you know virtually nothing about the program. Secondly, I'm NOT a bookkeeper. I think I've got a handle on it now so I should be turning out more Palouse paintings shortly.

At least that is my hope.
