Inspiration in the garden

I'm working on the new piece- it's another time consuming one- it has a library theme - "She Could Only Choose One" had flowers- this one has books. More on that soon. My ultimate goal is to have the piece done this week. (wish me luck on that!)

During firing times I am doing the little 5x7 canvases- and this morning had one of those awful- uh oh- what should I do? moments. I should have spent some time with my sketchbook yesterday but I was distracted by a good novel.

I grabbed the camera and went into the garden and was greeted by a dozen of these poppies that unfurled last night- problem solved- I'm thinking that orange will look very cool with a red and pink sunset background......
