Pink Poppies for the Nursery

Several years ago, I painted these brightly colored poppies for my daughter to hang over the mantel in her New York apartment.

She married and moved to an apartment with no fireplace so the poppies spent some time stored in her mother-in-law's basement.

Recently, they've moved again... this time across the country! The poppies now hang in my new granddaughter's nursery.

There was a slight problem... the poppies needed to be pink! Grandma Peg traveled with tubes of permanent rose and zinc white. Voila!!! Pink poppies... easy peasy!

The room is not quite finished, but here's a sneak peak!

  1. What a pretty room! Lucky baby, to sleep beneath a piece of original art from her Grandma.
