Summer Blooms revisited

Remembering summer today. This is painting #49 in my 100 painting project. Just a few short months ago this was the view in our yard, abundant with color against the rich greens in the backdrop of the trees. Now all that remains is our memory of these glorious blossoms as we head into winter here in our mountains. And it has been cold these past few days. With snow blowing around. Remember our beans? Well here's a guy who really takes counting his beans seriously. I am just hoping he's more than a little off in his calculations this year.

Lovely. My favorite landscapes are those revealing closeup nature and this is just wonderful. I'm so impressed with your progress.

It's a lovely treat to look at this instead of the snow and ice outside my window!

Very nice! Love the brush strokes in the flower petals, and the rich colors you used in the back, especially.

I am amazed at your process in the last post. I would never have the patience!
