Purple Clematis

Set in the morning shadow, this lovely purple bloom waits for the sun. I came across this beautiful clematis vine on an early morning walk in Forest Park in Springfield, MA. I just thought the interplay of the vivid purple set against the green leaves, and the shadows was stunning, and was thrilled when the photo came out as lovely as the flower in real life.

Recently I was asked to frame an 8 × 10 print of this photo. I used a loden green mat and a pale lavender wood frame - it was gorgeous!

My camera is in the repair shop and I'm suffering withdrawal I've been painting, and painting...and painting. When my camera gets back, I'll take photos of the new paintings and post them.
