Poppies for Millie

Poppies for Millie
by Cheryl Harris White
Acrylic on Canvas
24" x 18"
Here's some more lovely poppies to start of April.  I loved putting some of the blue and red from the sky and poppies into the grass.  I used a lot of thick paint for the sky and grass and the same color scheme as the Rowen Trees from earlier.

This painting is for Millie.  She's an amazing woman who has dedicated her life to serving God and inspiring others to do the same.  I met her the summer between my Junior and Senior year of college when I was on a summer mission project with Campus Crusade for Christ.   It is amazing to me to even try to fathom the seeds she has planted in the lives of young college students over the years.  She had a huge impact on me and others as well and  I  am so thankful to have had her in my life.
