Friends: One Silver and One Gold

My neighbor (a new friend & gardener)

challenged me to create a painting

for the Summer Art Show 2020

with chamomile, poppy, and lavender flowers.

She had given me a start of several herbs,

including chamomile,

Chives, Valerian, & Chamomile

so how could I refuse?

I painted it several weeks ago,

but it just wasn’t right.

(This photo was taken with a filter

which makes it lighter and pinker than the painting.)

I worked on the flowers many times,

and I was about to paint over the whole thing…


I showed my friend, Val;

she said to change the vase.

I did.

Thanks for following along,
