California poppies are one of my favorite outdoor flowers! I have an entire row of them outside my front door. They sway beautifully in the gentle breeze. I love how they close themselves at night then awaken in the morning. They have total control of themselves. I transformed my orange poppies into magenta. . . representing love at its highest level and the color of the non-conformist, the free spirit. I am a free spirit . . . and my art catapulted me into being even more so. The color magenta pushes us to take responsibility for creating our own path in life and increases dream activity while assisting us in turning our ambitions and desires into reality.
