Poppy Love..................

.............Some poppy love going on around here!  80 degrees this week!!! This is crazy.........This is March right? When we arrived in CA last year we didn't see 80 until what May???I hope this is not an omen for a terribly hot summer..........

My scanner is terrible..........it washes out every drawing i try to scan or puts in a glare.....especially on black colors......so i had to go in and adjust the brightness on this picture and a touch of contrast so you could see all the details but as i hold the original up to the screen next to it......its pretty darn close......much closer than the washed out version the scanner gave me........Its a Kodiak printer/scanner....i've never had this problem with any other scanner but this scanner does it to me every time.......sigh.......But i hope you like it........I like how some parts of it stick out over the edges and i'm pretty pleased with how the wrought iron fence came out.......The yellow does not play nicely with the other colores and i must remember that........it does not blend as nicely.....it seems to be maybe more waxy and works much better if i use it on top of other colors rather than laying it down first and color on top of it.....I find that hard to remember in the heat of the moment though....:)  Hugs! deb

Beautiful! I like the yellow - looks like its sun kissed!

I have the Kodak Office Hero 6.1 and the colour is great for scanning. Too bad they are out of business. We bought this one about 2 weeks before they announced they were going out of business!

Gorgeous. The colors and scale are Georgia O'Keefe bold. But with a definite Deb Terry-ness.
