A Bee and Butterfy feast

I could not think of any imaginative title - not that titles are my strong suit anyway! "Purple Vase"? "Black-eyed Susans"? This is from art class tonight, and the flowers are from Christina's garden. But I have purple coneflowers and black-eyed susans in my own garden, and the bees and butterflies seem to love them.

This was done on my usual Canson, smooth side, a slatey-blue color, 12x16. Mostly NuPastels and Rembrandts and some nameless others.

And a NOTE to update: This painting has now been *sold*. Hope it's happy in its new home, where it will join a previous painting of mine.

I have those same coneflowers in my garden and they are great for bringing in the butterflies. I love you art work..Michelle
