As a painter and a gardener, I have gravitated quite naturally to the abstraction of native poppies.
The organic form is so much more engaging for me and malleable compared
to the verticle form I had focused on in the past.
Most recently I am captivated by the form and the abstraction of the Matilija Poppy.
They dance in my garden every season
and I photograph them daily when they bloom and through their life cycle.
