It's finished! Took me longer than I anticipated due to unexpected interruptions (I didn't choose this Blog name on a whim!) I did exactly what I said I'd do. I took my time and did section by section. Obviously the palm took the longest. Looking closely the palm frond is a combination of greens, yellow, and dusty blues. I used a random combination of colors for the palm. Each individual leaf (?) was completed using the same colors but in different order. I didn't plan each one, just kind of let it happen. I took great care to make sure each one was different. The palm as well as the poppy really needed to POP! I'm believe that's been accomplished! So please enjoy "The Poppy".
