Nature & Botanical Journal 2010 - 1 WATERMARK

NATURE & BOTANICAL ART JOURNAL – Since I started making my own watercolor art journals, I create a cover.  Painting the cover usually reflects whatever subject I happen to be painting at that moment.  In this case, it was Matilija Poppies, which grow wild in San Diego.  I love that they are known as the Cowboy’s Fried Egg Poppy, too!  These poppy petals are like crinkled white paper and grow about 5 feet high in large bushes.  They are one of my favorite poppies!
