Today, I am am offering a pair of beautiful oriental poppies painted on handmade Lokta paper infused with gold metallic ink.


I love painting on this surface because of the unique way the paper absorbs the paint.

The gold streaks of ink resist the watercolor and this give these pieces such a interesting look.

The red poppy is the traditional symbol of remebrance in this country and in Europe.
Quite fitting for Veteran's Day.
