Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. ~ Pablo Picasso
As a native Californian, I feel a special fondness for the poppies that splash our hillsides with color. I often heard my Dad sing a song about 'golden poppies gleaming in the sun.' So, I've been enjoying making a series of small watercolors of these bright flowers.
In addition, I was drawn to the face of a perceptive Brazilian rancher whom I read about and who recognizes the great importance of saving the rainforest.
