Moonji Lee Pickering - In Search of Light: California Poppies
California Poppies, 2021
11x14", Colored Pencil
The brilliantly colored Golden Poppy is one of my favorite flowers to see in California. Their colors are so rich and yet their petals are so delicate. When the wind blows they look like they are dancing. I wanted to highlight the bright orange color of the Poppies and capture the way they sway in the breeze. The Poppies represent an eternal light that we can all look forward to seeing every year, reminding us that no matter how tough a given year is, there is always hope on the horizon.
