In the spring, my husband and I went on a long-awaited trip to Italy.
Most of our time was spent in Tuscany.
It was as wonderful as I had hoped it would be!
There were times I felt as if we were in a living postcard.
The hills were verdant in every shade of green, lush and lively and filled with joyful, wild, red poppies!
The poppies were growing along the side of the roads, underneath the grapevines, and up hillsides through the country.
The site of the vibrant red poppies waving in the breeze was such a joy!
Those are the kind of things that really make me happy.
This painting brings together some of my favorite things; beautiful color, flowers, and the fun exploration of travel.
I was inspired to paint it as a reminder of something that uplifts your spirit and brightens your day.
