This is an acrylic painting of blanket flowers in my garden. This painting seemed to go on and on forever. Layer afer layer of transparent washes to get the intense colours. But in the end - I am glad that I stayed with it. It reminds me of a garden party.

I originally saw these flowers while at a painting plein air art event in Hampton, NB -I searched garden centers until I found some to purchase.
