Poppies and Lupine by Kay Kempton Raade

I’ve loved orange and purple combination since I discovered Dave Brubeck’s album, “Time Out-Take Five.
I decorated my college dorm room to match that cover and kept it propped up on the Hi-Fi. LOL
It’s nice that the field behind me reseeds them every summer. Foothills of the Bridger Mountains, Gallatin County, Montana, USA

Added texture layers in CS 4
A video of me getting up after crouching down was probably the best shot!

Album Cover by Joan Miro

    Splendid ~ what a fine combination of flowers. both up there on my list. And the Take Five cover ~ always a favorite. My original LP cover is all scuffed & rubbed, but it’s still a winner. Got it when I was about 12. Beautiful work, Kay.

  • Well, glad to find someone who was influenced by Brubeck too. His sons played at the Ellen Theater here last fall. I still prop that album cover up as a decoration now and then. Thanks for you comment on the flowers.
