THIS PAINTING IS SOLD!
One of my favorite flowers! There are so many beautiful almost irridecent colors in this flower that it is perfect to paint. I love how it changes color as the summer progresses. My 30 year old plant in Arlington VA changes from pink to blue and the blooms are the size of cabbages!
Lots of rich thick oil on this for added texture!
