Coneflowers

I've gotten stuck working on a larger painting that is just not going too well, so have not posted here lately. But last night I decided I needed to take a break from the larger work and go with something smaller and more accessible. So this one is from a photo I took in my garden, done on my usual Art Spectrum 9x12.

It seemed like a perfect painting to be part of my friend Michelle's 'Nature Notes' this week. This one was fun to do, and a change from my recent landscapes. Macro close-ups of things are also fun challenges.

Hi Deb...I am so pleased that you joined Nature Notes this week!!! You know I love your art work, but this is really great. My coneflowers are still in the growing stage, but soon they will look like your painting. I love that you added the bee as the bees do love them....Michelle

That is a good one for nature notes. I love coneflowers and you did a great job with this one.

One day I'll have a garden big enough to grow a big bunch of coneflowers :) A lovely subject, thank you for sharing!
