California Poppies
© Dale Tanis

While living in exile in San Francisco, I came upon these delicate and lovely flowers that were golden yellow with vibrant orange centers. They grew wild on the edges of open space parks and the small areas of undeveloped land between costal towns. I must have photographed hundreds of them, but was never satisfied with the results.

I enrolled in a class on water-based screenprinting to expand my knowledge and my skills. Although the technology still wasn’t quite where I wanted it to be (I wouldn’t find anything close to what I was looking for for about another 11 years), it was still fun to try something out of my normal way of doing things. Since everything was done by hand, I had to choose a simple subject. What could be more simple than the California Poppies that brought me so much joy?
