This is lovely, it reminds me of a stained glass window. Poppies are a very popular subject at the moment. I love your gallery, all very distinctive.

Lovely vibrant colour, your stylised flower paintings always stand out on the gallery.

Couldnt agree more about the stained glass. Delicious colours

Excellent; well balanced and super choice of colours

I agree 100% with the above comments, Val. Your whole gallery is sooo colourful and this one is one of my favourites!! Well done!

Ditto all the above Val....it's definately a panel of stained glass and great choice of colours.

I love this style - it's so different.

Gorgeous colour and style. Very 'Tiffany'.

Love it, Val! And you can paint as many versions as you like because I always enjoy looking at your paintings!

val love your bold designs ... and bright colours

Lovely blend of colours

Really lovely use of colour Val. I've enjoyed looking through your very diverse gallery of excellent paintings. Thanks for the kind comment on my Staithes painting.
