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,
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.
Thanks for following along,
