The Stansberry's Garden

I had this luscious thick bumpy absorbent watercolor paper in a handmade book Phyllis gave me for Bali sketching.  I wanted to paint wet wild and loose today with that paper, and the Stansberry's garden offered poppies.  Oh, luscious poppies with crepe paper pedals ... your dark secret interior and your knobby buds.  Thank you Steve and Donna!

I was on a roll and when we got to Judith's for our after-sketching gathering she had luscious peonies from HER garden on the table.  I sat down and was mesmerized.  Thank you, Judith!
