California Poppy Landscape with Oak Trees – Karen Winters
Poppies on the Hill
11 x 14
oil on canvas
SOLD, but I have more poppy paintings
I can’t think of a landscape more quintessentially Californian than spring’s poppy covered hillsides – and when you add oak trees it’s downright iconic. In this painting my objective was to capture the feeling of the radiant hillside, crowned by sprawling oaks. The Fresno Bee reports that this is one of the best years for wildflowers in a long time. I don’t know why – we haven’t had an abundance of rain, but whatever conditions brought about this abundance, I’m glad.
More California spring landscapes to come …
