While visiting in Texas during bluebonnet and poppy season, I was inspired to create a series of poppy pictures.  I use alcohol ink on Yupo paper.  I like the loose feeling of the inks, but it is very difficult to get the detail of the poppies and stems,  It has been a real challenge to learn how to control the poppies, however they are still one of my favorite images.

Because the inks float on top of the paper (the paper does not absorb the color as it is plastic) they dry with brilliant colors.  Hope this brings you joy.

I will eventually  be demonstrating some of my techniques on this page.  Please feel free to comment.  My website is  I can be reached at
