This rendering of a macro photo by my beloved and talented friend, Elena Giorgi, asked me for a refresh.  It had been hanging in my studio framed and ready to find it's forever home but I kept getting a tug so I took it down and knew it didn't feel finished.  I added some textured glass around the outside of the poppy, filled in the negative space with peridot, and painted the frame black.  (It didn't like the blue frame it had been in.)

The piece "feels" happier now and has a super neat vibe coming off it.  The energy and vitality that peridot brings to such a tender flower makes me happy.  I was reading about the different symbolism of red poppies and read that in Eastern cultures the red poppy symbolizes love and success.  I also read that poppies are the perfect flower to gift people who have birthdays in August.  I was pretty excited to read this - I'm an August birthday girl, I love poppies, and adore my august birthstone!
