Late afternoon light.
Painted on location near Safford, Arizona
Drove down a BLM dirt road among the poppies for nearly 8 miles. The poppies stretched as far as the eye could see in all directions for the entire drive. Some patches thicker than others, but golden flowers colored a huge area of the landscape.
I originally intended to begin my "An Interview With Nature" project in March. This was one of several plein air paintings I did on my trip to Arizona. Because of various circumstances, I postponed beginning the project in earnest until May. I decided to include this image from earlier because I like it so much.
