Red Poppy?

Red Poppy
The reason for the question mark in the title of this painting is because I am not sure that this is a Poppy.  It certainly looks like some type of Poppy to me.  But I'm not sure.  I took the photograph it was painted from in the parking lot at Cannon Beach, Oregon, in May 2006.  I was attending OPAR, the Oregon Porcelain Artist Retreat, and my daughter was staying with me at the hotel, the weekend before classes started.  She lives in Beaverton, Oregon.  We drove down to this beach which was about 7 miles south of Seaside, where we were staying.  There was a whole bed of these riotious flowers in the parking lot of the beach.  I love the brilliant red color and the varigated edges of the petals.
