"Poppies" Under the Tuscan Sun

Hi everyone, I am happy to say that I finished my latest painting. I am very happy with my new "Poppies" painting. It was very hard to get a really good photograph. Photographing the reds was very challenging. The warm highlights of the oranges and yellow are not showing up like in the original painting, nor are the dark reds. I will try and photograph tomorrow again.

In the meantime here are two pics (a crop) and long view of my new painting:
