Poppies of Italy

I've just returned from a painting trip to Italy in the Chianti area of Tuscany. I was in a painting workshop with Greg LaRock who is a fantastic instructor. We stayed in an old monastery that has been totally updated in San Fedele. The painting above was done the last day of the workshop at a poppy field near a small town named Pianini (sp?) There were only 5 of us including Greg and we all painted the poppy field from various locations. My view included the Italian home at the top of the hill. We had seen other poppy fields, but this one was spectacular. Such a treat! Hope you enjoy. I'll be showing my artwork at Art Affair again this summer and will have this piece there.
