More Poppies

I spent the morning working in the front garden tidying up the mass of poppies. Even though they looked dead from a distance, I found that most of them were sprouting again from the base. Amazing plants to be putting out new growth in the heat of summer without any water.

The print is a variation on an image I carved a few weeks ago. I decided to try hand coloring a print, and this is the result. I love the variation in the color of the poppies in my yard, and it was fun to capture that in the print.
