Weekly Challenge at Inspiration Avenue- A Pocket Full of Light

The challenge this week at Inspiration Avenue was "A Pocket Full of Light" and I decided to do a painting of a poppy backlit by the afternoon sun.  I just listed it in my Etsy shop, click HERE for more information and to see more images of it.

And check in at Inspiration Avenue on Monday to see next week's theme; hosted by your's truly! 
Come play with us!

Wow, wow, wow... what a gorgeous painting!! I absolutely LOVE poppies, Cali state flower you know and they hold a special place in my heart for my grandmother. Gee, maybe you'd be interested in a trade? I even still have some of those scarves you were interested in. Just a thought. ;-)
This is really lovely Stephanie!♥

This is a beautiful painting. Poppies are one of my favorites. The colors are so vibrant. I love the way the light comes shining through.
I love your new background too! Sharron's new site is awesome.
Good luck with this one.

These colors are wonderful. Well done Stephanie!

I am back up and running since my old Gateway Notebook caught that nasty "Storm Worm Virus" last week and it ate my entire hard drive. I lost everything. I now have a new Dell Studio 17 laptop, new Internet Security and a huge supply of data sticks to put my work on so this never happens again. If you don't have your work backed up, please get some data sticks and do so. I would hate to have this happen to anyone.

I am back in the saddle and catching up on Blog visits this morning!
