Larkspur
8"x10"
oil on masonite


I love to paint our home grown flowers. I feel a connection with them knowing their history. Our garden gets bigger each year thanks to my gardener/wife and each year she plants newer varieties. We planted this Larskspur last year and this is our first blossom from it.

I started painting last night close to midnight. Thats the reason I don't have any progress pictures. I'll be sure to get some on the next post.

Lovely done Peter!
