"Garden Flowers"
(Work in progress)
Oil on Canvas 36"x18"
Last spring I began this painting of all the flower types that grow in the garden here. I was able to complete early spring flowers, but then was unable to continue. Also, the crab apple tree did not bloom last year and I really wanted it included. It has been in bloom now for two days! It is beautiful and this year there are more bees buzzing around it than in the last few blooming periods. That is happy news.
Though this is an incomplete painting, I decided to include it today and post it as it progresses through the summer. Columbine will be next, then roses, daisies, zinnias.....
Below is a detail of the most nearly complete section.
