As the title implies, this is one of two Oriental poppies.  I cut this flower in my garden and painted it from life that afternoon.  It moved and changed in the vase as I painted it–Oriental poppies just can’t sit still, so I did two of them from different perspectives as the petals opened.  I’ll post the other one tomorrow.
