I think of them as my fall back work. Designs I can try different techniques with and know in the end that I will still like the end product simply because I like the image that I am working with. My own personal motif so to speak. I draw these abstract blooms almost unconsciously, like when some others doodle circles or stars or interlocking boxes - on the phone when someone has you waiting for the next available customer service person. As I think back there are more in this series, See below that do not match the color scheme above but they too derived from my poppy series that now number around a dozen. I'll show you my poppy series another day
Note the color difference. All but the bottom right one was done in Missouri. The blue checkered background was one of the first pieces I did in Florida and all of the ones in the first collage were done in Florida with the exception of the piece - top middle - which goes to my belief that I am a red/orange/yellow person no matter what part of the world I live in... but I am more of that red/orange/yellow person when the sun shines. Yeah for the sunshine!!!! Now I don't feel bad for blaming my color that were less than happy color choices on the mid-west.
