These images are from a large watercolour painting which took on a life of its own while I worked.  The central flower was the starting point.  The dark background came when the title came to me "My Gethsemene".  Poppies are often associated with sacrifice and death, as in war, yet they are entirely beautiful.   The petals are almost paper thin yet they seem to have their own strength.

Once again, words from e.e. cummings came to me: "Nothing you will ever perceive can equal the power of this flower's intense vulnerability..."
