Rose on Poppy Pattern

Rose on Poppy Pattern  Oil on panel, 8" x 8,"  $285.
Over the years I've done many floral paintings with hopes of having them approved by various publishing companies for use on posters.  (See one here, from DEC of 2009.)  I can tell you that is not an easy business.  So many rejections and a lot of canvas miles.  Though I have no regrets and much was learned.  "Rose on Poppy Pattern" revisits what I was trying to do back in 2009.  Taking what's good from previous work and re-imagining it is always worthwhile.


  1. Hi Diane...I painted roses today, but nowhere near as beautiful as this one.
    I checked out your poppies from 2009 and it is a stunning painting.
    I truly think you are one heck of a fabulous painter!
