Second on the Second - 3/2/16

Time for Elizabeth's Second on the 2nd.  It is a fun opportunity to look through your old posts and bring one back to the top.  Go look for one you like and join us.  Here is something from a few years ago.  I don't think Inspiration Avenue is active any longer.


Inspiration Avenue Challenge 1/10/13

The theme for the challenge at Inspiration Avenue this week is POPPIES.  I like poppies a lot and have sketched or painted a few.

I enjoy working with layers of torn pieces of paper, stacking them up to create some depth and texture on the canvas.   The texture doesn't really show up in a photo all that well though.

I had some cards printed from this image.  The original now hangs on a wall in my daughters house


  1. This is just beautiful!! Thanks for sharing it again!

  2. I remember this one, Darla. It was one of my favorite posts, especially since your other blog no longer works. These poppies are a fav of mine, too. Beautiful art and great talent all rolled into one. Thanks for sharing this for your Second look on the 2nd.

  3. Beautiful! I love poppies - great idea to make cards using the image! Hugs, Chrisx
