Poppies wont keep still
I have attempted a few times lately to paint the poppies that are at the side of my house but the breeze keeps moving them and I have about given up. I don't wish to paint them from a photo, because I want to really capture the live essence of them. So today I gave up and just wrote about them instead:

I STRUGGLE WITH A SENSE OF AWE AND SADNESS, VISUALLY ABSORBING THE FLEETING BURST OF BRILLIANT ORANGE...KNOWING THAT TOMORROW THE POPPIES WILL HAVE PASSED THEIR VIBRANT PRIME AND IN A RITUAL PERFECTED BY TIME, WILL RELEASE THEIR VITAL BUT GRAYING PETALS TO THE SIDEWALK BELOW....
