Plucked from the Garden


I don't usually paint flowers, so this purple powered piece is an exception. Along with a few straggler buds here and there. But that being said, the older I get, the more I notice and appreciate the beauty of flowers and plants, in nature and all around me.

 I have bountiful frilly white puffs of hydrangeas in my garden right now. I also have bright green potato vines creeping over their window boxes, purple loosestrife pointing towards the sky, day lilies absorbing the hot July sun, scalding jalapenos ready to pop and thick thorny raspberry bushes bursting with fruit. What do you have?
