Some lovely poppies.

I have friends that have a beautiful zen garden and for the second time this year I've gone to visit it. This last weekend, I had a helper so brought along some black and white foam core to separate some flowers from the myriad of flowers growing there.

I so enjoyed my time and would like to share 2 of the images I took of poppies while there because I think they are great!

I'm not sure how to show them a bit bigger as thumbnails (even though you can click to see them bigger) do not do them justice.

There’s An option next to the thumb nails as to “full size” or “icon” so I did it for U 🦉!

But these are not tulips, this time.


I see your are exploring!

Maggie Terlecki: Poppies

The black background and the lighting partly from above is perfect!

These look very nice and the idea to build a makeshift studio background directly in the garden is brilliant!

Thank you, Jerome. The idea worked so well. The foam-core is so lightweight and there was no setting up, just put the card behind the flowers so in and out in no time at all, and not creating any hullabaloo, not disturbing anyone.

Still exceptional over a year later. The impact is just as strong.

Have you used these for cards or framed prints!

Thank you for the kind words Asher. They can be purchased as prints, but I compete with hundreds of thousands of artists, and they mostly don't get seen. Poppies are a very popular subject so if my images come up on page 250, not many see them. I would actually one day like to have a couple prints of these in my home perhaps quite large and on acrylic, because they would look modern that way, but I already struggle financially so that will have to wait!
