My eyes are feasting on these delicious poppies.

Lovely - a magic blend of pattern, colour and composition. You nailed this one.

I feel very lucky, thank-you

I particularly love the row of trees in this one. That I love the red of the poppies should go without saying.

The poppies lack any kind of character. How much time do you spend on this stuff ? I'd guess 1/2 hour max per pic. I't suggests oil paintings produced in China in a factory. One gal does the sky, one gal does the sea, one gal does the field and one gal does the flowers. I't's original but is it art ??

Well it's pretty difficult to get character into poppies in a 6"x 4" even for us chinese. J

I love this painting! It evokes emotion...Shame on you Bill..you sound like a very angry person...
