Number 2 in my painting a day series

Well, today I couldn't go to the mountains to plein air paint like usually do and the sky has kind of a smoky haze which doesn't do much for painting vistas- too many forest fires in Colorado and New Mexico I guess. Anyway, I decided to paint some poppies that were in my front yard and honestly, I had a rough time. I decided not to paint on my usual canvas and paint on a birch board that had shellac on it. I just was not very happy with the result and will go back to my canvas that (I didn't realize til now) I have grown very accustomed to. Maybe tomorrow will work out better.
