Finally, the next addition to the Long Stem Series. I have a lot of Blanket Flowers (Gaillardia) in my flower garden and they brighten the garden now that the daisies are gone. They are drought tolerant and plentiful. The seed pods are fun to paint, and the flowers a challenge with the brick red flowing into a bright yellow.
I am still working on the Long Stems series and will post when I have the current piece finished. In the meantime, I have been on a couple of wildflower walks and am posting Artist Trading Card paintings of flowers from the walks.
